    I love minky for backing quilts. Would appreciate your suggestions as to what to use the remaining pieces that are only about 2" to 4" after trimming quilts. Thanks.

    How about something like stocking hats and mittens for little kids, you could combine the pieces?

    If you have a couple of 4" ones, you can sew them together and use it for the outer edge of a pillowcase.

    Thank you for your suggestions. I haven't tried to sew the pieces together, thought because it curls so much that it may not be worth the trouble. I will give it a try. Thanks again. Kathy

    I was thinking it would be great to use them in applique, like the centers of the flowers for the Happy Daisey quilts.

    Maybe even make the flower petals out of them too. Give them a 3-D affect. Also little ones would love the texture.

    I would use a soft fusible on the backs then the blanket stitch around them.

    Or make animal appliques like the cats on the stairway.

    Or make those cute, cuddly bears that someone had on here a while back - I think those were patchwork ones but I bet you could use the same pattern.

    Doesn't matter what you do with it, it's always right, because it's soooooooooooo soft.
