    I beleive this technique is called stack and whack? Or something? Anyway...My DH wanted a quilt that "didn't make sense?" and he didn't want any patterns on his fabrics.....Well that is impossible for any sort of interest...so I used all batiks.....they add enough interest and the pattens are not over whelming.....his next request is that it have minky on the back...my Dh is six foot three..so this quilt is very long and skinny. His next quilt he wants it to have osme sort of optical illusion......well I will look into that later.LOL. I did all of teh quilting on an Innova long arm....freehand.

    Does all that quilting on the back of the minkie affect the overall softness and feel of it? I am in the process of making my nephews minkie quilts and have worried that too much quilting would lose the softness of the overall backing.

    No I have not had a problem.....This is a low loft minky but it is still very soft and comfy.....on some of our others I have used minky that is called..."fur" which is really long fibers and you can't even see the quilting after it is washed..also very nice.
