    I have two yards of a sage green minkee and 2 yards of a polka dot minki, i was thinking of making a throw with it, but wondered if anyone has incorporated minkee into quilts before on here? I would love to see pictures. I need inspiration please :-)

    I personally haven't, but I know others on the board use it for backing, and I do believe some have used it the quilt top.
    Do a board search for minkee and I am sure you will find a lot of info. Isn't this board great? :thumbup:

    I have used it on the top and as backing for a couple baby blankets. Other than the mess of working with it, I liked it very much. The LQS I go to is having a class this summer and using it in a throw. I imagine I will do the class. Minkee is so soft and cuddly! But, I can tell you...my daughter cannot stand to the feel of it! LOL So the throw I make will not be finding its way to her room!

    I have used it in baby bankies and I found that serging around it first before blocking it together stops all the "fuzzies" from getting all over.
