If you look back on all of my blog posts, you will see that this is not the first quilt that I have made out of Crown Royal bags, but it is such a unique project that I wanted to share again! Word gets around in a small town when you make something as unique as this project was, so when Marsha was getting all of her bags gathered up and she was looking for someone to make the quilt for her, my name was mentioned. Marsha's husband had been saving all of his Crown Royal Whiskey bags for over 18 years for this purpose (no pressure huh?) He had saved a total of 110 large bags and 12 of the smaller bags.
This is my pretty longarm Lulu! She does such a great job. We were just getting started on this project here.
I quilted a tight stipple on the whole quilt. I used a flannel fabric for the borders and the backing and Warm & White for the batting.
I think that the gold border really makes this quilt pop!
Anyone who knows me knows that I LOVE Me & My Sister Designs fabrics. Well their new line Ticklish just came out and my store got it in! I knew they were going to make a sample out of it, and they know how much I love the fabrics so they chose me to make it. The top took only 3 hours to cut out and piece together...the quilting took about 8 hours. That is saying a lot because this quilt is really small!
Happy Quilting everyone!
