Wow, I guess it has been eons since I have been exposed to a crown royal bag. The ones I remember were always made out of velvet. Now they are flannel? Anyway you did a wonderful job on this. Love how you quilted it.

Yes I prewashed the bags. Wash them before you cut them up because the fabric really unravels. The bags are purple and I used a tan/gold blender fabric to set it together with. I used bag scraps for the narrow border purple as well which was a challenge due to stretch and waving. Thanks for all the kind words.

Sharon, you can go to eBay and look up Crown Royal Bags. They sell them there by the dozens. Then you can Google Crown Royal Quilts and there are hundreds and hundreds of them to look at, it's just amazing.

Oreo 1912.first I'd like to say this is a gorgeous piece of work. the quilting is top-notched. I was gifted last year a giant trash bag full of those bags. There was more purple ones but a few green ones and one red one I do believe. It was a collections from a few years back. Then the gentlemen that gifted them to me show snap-shots of other quilts that was crafted by his late Aunt. They were beautiful also, they all make-up into beautiful art no matter which pattern you use. Thanks for all of your crafting tips, I will keep them in mind when I start one. Oh, I shared the gift with the other ladies of my quilting group that wanted some.

Doesn’t seem to be the craze like it was a few years ago. This lay out of the bags is one of the best I’ve seen.
