    I have friends who are going to be soooo jealous! They've wanted something made out of the Crown Royal logos, but nearby quilters (me included) haven't had the guts to try anything, believing that the fabric won't hold up. Did you reinforce it with anything? I could make some happy friends with this idea!

    I didn't reinforce it. I was told that it will loose its color when washed .. so dry clean only. It is more for look that use.... but imagine what people will say when they see it on the back of the chair or sofa. The pictures don't do it justice.. it looks real classy, but most of all it looks ... MANLY!

    Pretty darned good, Dawn. My son has been wanting me to make a quilt out of CR bags for over a year now. Too bad he doesn't have the bags, lol. You gave me some pretty good ideas when he does get them. Hmmmmm, do they make beer bags? I'm sure he would have plenty of those. LOL

    For those wanting Crown Royal bags...
    You could probably go to any bar and restaurant and ask them if you can have them.
    They probably go through several bottles a week, since it is a very popular Canadian Whiskey...
    I have seen someone make a puff quilt out of them and it was very nice.

    Jackie, I guess you'll have to start drinking heavily to get enough bags to make him a quilt. The sacrifices we make for our children...

    The Crown Royal quilt is gorgeous. Aren't you the clever girl???

    I like your quilt. I have about 150 bags and have never done anything with them. The post on Bear Paw fabrics is really nice too. I thought everybody knew what Crown Royal is. It's not cheap either. Well known in Texas. Daddy calls it good toothache medicine. Thanks for the post, you have given me some good ideals for mine. Now the boys will fight over who gets it. :thumbup:

    Thanks all for the compliments.

    I wanted something masculine .. and purple is not on the masculine side. I wish you could see the border fabric better.. it has the dotted circles and there is purple in it .. so it totally brought it all together. My center square is 3 by 3.. I only used the bags I could get that size out of.

    When I made my CR quilt I used 2 products that are a must from Dharma Trading Co.

    Professional Textile Detergent
    http://www.dharmatrading.com/html/eng/4986873-AA.shtml
    Dye Fixative
    http://www.dharmatrading.com/html/eng/1569-AA.shtml

    The bags are flannel and very easy to work with. I washed them before cutting or removing the drawstrings. Since the fabric is not really meant to be washed, the detergent and fixative help to remove any migratory dye and to fix the set dye. Once they are washed and dried, you can really see the color differences and sort accordingly.

    I loved seeing your Crown Royal quilt. I live in the town where Crown Royal is made so it was interesting to me to see your beautiful quilt.
