    Crown Royal Quilt

    Just finished this quilt for my niece. If you decide to do one of these a word of warning. get more bags than you need as some of the flannel is really cheap. Some are a blend and melt under the iron. The serger thread they are sewn together with also melts. Bags are a variety of sizes. All and all not a lot of fun to work with so it requires patience and extra bags so you can toss the bad ones.

    This looks Beautiful!! Are your bags Black?? I've made 2 quilts with the purple Crown Royal bags, one was in the Card Trick pattern. And yes, not all bags are made of the same fabric; some are lighter weight and some are a little heavier. I also cut away all the gold serger thread so then it limits the size of fabric piece you are left to work with. On the bright side --- your quilt looks Perfect!

    That turned out great! I have 100+ bags my son has been saving/ sending to me for years- he’s a bartender. Every now & then he asks me if I’ve made one yet- I’ve been waiting for the ( right) pattern. Yours is on my list of possible- I really like it. I’m afraid of all that white though....did you prewash your bags?

    Good job, I don't think I've seen one with white. So many are purple, gold and green and that's Mardis Gras colors down here. I love the white. Thank you for posting.

    Trish, When you buy a bottle of Crown Royal whisky, it comes in the purple bag, inside the box.

    Someone I went on a blind date with a long time ago asked me to make him a quilt from all of his Royal Crown bags....I really thought he was joking. Since then I have seen only a couple that I really liked and this includes yours. Good job! Question? Did you wash all the bags first to remove excess dye?

    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.
