Question regarding using minky for backing
I am about to complete a crib-size quilt for my new GGD due mid March and I am considering putting minky on the back. I'm looking for softness. Perhaps flannel. Which is preferable for those who have used both?
1. Will I still be able to spray baste?
2. Does minky quilt well?
3. If I use minky would you suggest that I use batting or not?
4. Binding and minky - any tips or suggestions.
5. Who, IYHO, sells the best quality flannel? Sometimes flannel can look dirty after it is washed. It kind of pills.
If I decide to put my signature bear on this quilt (french braid friendship pattern), would you suggest that I cut away the pieced part underneath the bear? The bear will be machine appliqued out of 100% cotton fabric.
Thanks for your usual great helpful responses. Yolanda Wood River
