My husband had collected all of these bags over years, there where about 90 bags in all, some were given to him by friends.
This is my very first quilt I ever made
About 90 Crown Royal Bags
Twin size Batting
12x12 pillow for the pillow case cover
Gold material for the back of the pillow case cover
Step 1: Making of the Crown Royal Quilt
I started by cutting the bags by using sissors and then used a rotar cutter and pad
Then I placed the squares on the floor to see how i wanted to lay them out and then pined them together
Then out came my sewing machine and sewed the top and back
Then I placed the back on the floor, batting, and then the top, I tried to line up the gold lines as much as possible and pin it with lots of streight pins.
Then starting from the middle of the quilt, I place my hoop, and used my ruler to draw a cross, and embrodiay my hand with the gold thread, believe my, my fingers were really sore until i found they hand protectors and went and bought some, it really helped.
After I finished I sewed the Purple Bordered on and then the gold tensile.
Step 2: Making of the Crown Royal Pillow Case
I cut the smaller bags into smaller squares and then placed them on the floor to see how I wanted it to look
Then I sewed it together, for the back side of the case it is gold from some scrap material I had left over. I sewed
the cut it a little larger than the size of the pillow so the it would over lap in the back, then I cut it in half and sewed the ends of it.
Then I turned the crown royal side inside out with the gold side inside out and sewed it together, then I turned it right side out.
After that i put the purple border on and the gold tensile.
