A Very Feathery, “Crown Royal” Quilt

Customer Quilts | May 15, 2015 | By

I put off doing this quilt for a LONG time! I just couldn’t figure out the quilting. Well, it was worth the wait and sometimes you need to sleep a lot of nights to come up with a design!

Luckily, the maker is a good friend of mine and she was patient! She is also a feather lover, so I went a little overboard with the feathers, but I think it worked! I used gold Glide thread to blend well with the gold of the Crown embroidery.
If you look closely, you can see the crowns in the fabric. They fit perfectly with the theme!
Now, maybe the best part about this quilt is the title. Together we named this, “Don’t Drink and Sew!” We had quite a laugh when we saw that two pieces were turned wrong. Can you see them? What else can you do at this point! No matter, still a beautiful quilt!!

        Hi, I’m sorry I have no idea. This was a customer quilt, so not one made by me. I only did the quilting.

          The crown royal quilt material is called Mardi Gras but the one with crowns has been discontinued.

    Absolutely gorgeous! I have committed to making one of these for my brother-in- law this year. Can you tell me what pattern you used? I cannot in my wildest dreams come up with this pattern.

    Absolutely beautiful quilting!! Where did you find the material with the crowns if you don’t mind my asking. It goes so perfectly. I saw someone asking about the pattern. It is called the Friendship Star and is a fairly easy pattern. It is half square triangles but how you place them makes the pattern.

      Thanks Cathy! It was a customer quilt and I think she found the fabric in our local fabric store, Sarah’s Fabrics, in Lawrence, KS. A fabulous store, BTW!!! Thanks for the pattern name. I will pass that along to the person who had asked! Thanks!

      The fabric I used was the same colors in the beads except instead of crowns it has Fleur Di Lis with the beads. I was told that the fabric with crowns had been discontinued. The fabric is Mardi Gras Fabric Collection by M’Liss. It can be found on ebay but I don’t know how much they have.

        Thank you so much! From the pictures, I didn’t notice the crowns in the purple. It was the muti-color fabric I was interested in. Again, I really appreciate you sharing your information.

    I would love to know where you found the fabric for the crown royal quilt. The fabric is gorgeous and matches so well with the crown royal bags without being over the purple and gold. Would you share the patter? And the names of the fabric and where you purchased the fabric?

        I made a king size Royal Crown quilt. The pattern is the Friendship Star which can be found online. I determined the size of the blocks by the size I could fussy cut the gold logo for the center square. I have no problem helping anyone with more details if needed.

          Thanks Cathy! The hardest part may be deconstructing the bag. 😉

            Not hard….but time intensive. They are slightly different on each bag.

          Hi Cathy, Do you mind sharing your instructions on the best way to deconstruct the bags?

            Hi Des, sorry, I didn’t make the quilt so I don’t know how to do that. I only do the quilting. 🙂

            I cut the top off close to the draw string, the took sean’s apart . Ironed the bags, centered the logo and cut the biggest block I could. I think it came out to be 4.25 or 4.5. Use the lines on your ruler to make sure th logo is straight.. I found the bags are not all the same. Very time consuming but worth it.

            Good job! Tedious, but worth it!

    Hi Kelly,
    I have been asked to quilt this same quilt for a customer, and she gave me a picture of your work to reference.
    She would like the white spaces on the interior of the quilt to have the feathers like you have shown. Did you free hand this design, or is this a pattern that is available for purchase somewhere?
    Thank you very much for any help!!
    Holly
