    "Boys' Nonsense" / Crown Royal

    This pattern is called "Boys' Nonsense" and I thought that just went along perfectly with my theme! It will be auctioned off at my friends bar named "Pickled Pete's". (see the pickle green?) The purple is from the felt bags that Crown Royal whiskey comes in. (There's some Boys' Nonsense for you right there!) The bar is having a fundraiser to start a memorial scholarship fund after the sudden death of a patron.

    I haven't posted any completed work for awhile, so I'm excited to show this fun little thing off!

    That's a riot - love the on-point setting and the purple vs. pickle green!
    I confess I opened this item up thinking oh no.... how tacky will it be LOL... and your quilt is just right-on! Perfect for the agenda and snazzy!
    My dad used to save his pennies in Crown Royal bags. He had a fine sense of irony. I turned the pennies into the bank and threw out the bags...too bad.

    Can you even get the purple bags anymore? Used to get them with every bottle of CR.
    Quilt outside of the box!

    Oh! I forgot the most important part! NO, I did not drink all this alcohol! The bar saves them from every bottle they use. Thank you for the compliments.

    Looks perfect for the 'cause' to me. I bet it raises lots of money.

    Terrific quilt. A friend of my husband's gave me a box full of the CR bags and wants me to make a quilt for him. This pattern is perfect. Did you use stabilizer on the bags?

    No, no stabilizer this time. I thought it might get too heavy. If I was making one for myself (or for frequent use), I might have though. I don't know how the felt is going to hold up after many washes. I might put a dry clean only label on it...

    This is way cool. What a nice way to use something that always gets discarded, and it is for a good cause.
