I made a quilt with minkee as a backing and batiks on the front. My machine (a Pfaff) could not handle it. The thread broke constantly, and it was extremely frustrating to quilt. I didn't have the slippage problem because of the IDT, but boy, I really don't think I'll do it again on that machine. I got a new machine (Bernina) so we'll see how things go there. I would highly recommend doing some practice work with the minkee before you do an entire quilt just to be sure your machine likes it.
