    I hope it will. We got to love our men for trying.

    Way back when I made quilts in my spare time (sometimes working on them at campsites on the lake in TX); one each for all my kids (four at the time). They grew up; we visit back and forth from NC to TX to TN; help each other move, etc. Guess what I saw come out of the back of moving truck one day? The quilt I gave him wrapped all around a piece of furniture...... Needless to say from that point on, anything I give them leaves my memory. They are always asking me, "?Remember that quilt you gave me, Mom?" No not any more....when it goes it leaves my memory; giving me more room to figure out something else to make for them.
    Make every day count for something!

    At least you didn't have a lot of labor invested. It could have been a finished quilt!

    Here is a link on how to handle Minkee. Not sure if it will tell you anything new or not.

    Good luck with your Minkee.

    The worst part is, I'm not sure Minkee is all that absorbent!

    If it's true we learn from our mistakes, I'm going to be a genius!

    How's the new carpet. I think I would be more worried about the carpet because you can buy more material.

    I would rather have the minky used to sop up the water than have the carpet soaked. Carpeting is more expensive and harder to replace than fabric. It should wash up just fine.
