This is my second attempt at making a quilt. My first one like this. I looked on Pinterest and found this quilt so I just kept looking at the picture on Pinterest and tried to get it like the picture.
I am going to tell you the way I made it. I did a lot of ripping, but didn't give up. And this is the result. I'm proud of the way it came out. It is not perfect, but I am proud of it anyway. Hope this helps.
I measured my blocks 3 1/2" centering the words. Then using the sides of the bags I cut my solid blocks then did the same for my gold blocks. I sewed my pieces a block at a time like a checker board (photo attached); puppy not included. Lol. When all the blocks were finished I started sewing them together in rows till I finished. Then I sewed a purple border using the sides of the bags. Then I went around with a gold border. On the back side I went with a solid gold cotton. Then trimmed with purple binding.
Total Time: 3 months
This Crown Royal bag quilt was fun and easy to make. I split the bags in half and cut the sides to get a straight line and uniform size. To square off the bags, I made a triangle pattern to get a straight line. Then I did a 2 inch strip to connect the bags. I had a suede bag that I used for the 4 corners and used the cord from the bags to tie it.
Crown Royal keeps you warm inside and out!

I am making a quilt and was wondering if anyone knew where I can buy a gold colored material to match the gold color in Crown Royal bags. I have looked at several stores and can't seem to find the right color. Thanks.

I too have just done a star block with the Crown Royal bags. Biggest problem was I wanted to iron the bag flat and the yellow stitching burnt, so I flipped it over and lowered the setting. I just went to my local fabric store and picked out a gold color fabric. I have not washed the bags, so if I decide to make a quilt, I would try washing first. They don't seem all that sturdy. Good luck (02/17/2009)

This is my Crown Royal bag quilt. I have five more people waiting for me to make them one. It has been a lot of fun and a lot of time but well worth it.
Do you have any quilt patterns for making quilts from Crown Royal bags?

This is my new quilt. (02/21/2010)
Attached is a photo of the Crown Royal quilt that I made for a friend.
I cut the bags apart and was able to get a 4inch square for the label side of the bag. I used the back of the bag to make another 4 inch square. The label side was edged with gold satin like material. The back was edged with a purple material.
The large purple bands around the blocks are the sides of the bag. The quilt is big enough to use a queen size flat sheet for the backing. (06/08/2010)
I am looking for a pattern or instructions for making a Crown Royal quilt, using just the bags.

I am just cutting up the bags and using the size that I can get out of each bag, that shows the Crown Royal wording. I am sewing these on white blocks, but think gold might be prettier, then I will use the sides of the bag for the binding. Hope that helps. (09/17/2009)
I saw a quilt at the show in Sisters, OR this summer with squares made from the logo and the other side. It looked like a checkerboard. I have managed to collect a few of these bags and will wash them on delicate, then cut apart. I found it was not worth the time to unstitch them. I was able to get a star block from one bag 10.5 inches finished. I used the Ohio Star pattern from the book - Around the Block with Judy Hopkins. I used a gold batik for the background, my son wants me to try black so there will be more experimenting before a final design is achieved. I was unable to center the logo in the center of this square without piecing or making the overall square smaller, will try piecing the center block next. (09/18/2009)
This one is almost done.
This is my third quilt.
This is my second quilt.
I have just started working with Crown bags and I have found if you wash them (after removing the ties) in cold water with white vinegar they do not fade. This is my first time working with them, but I tended bar for 20+ years so I have a ton of them. Hope all goes well with whatever is attempted with bags. (01/16/2009)
