Welcome to the Quilting Board!
Your elephants are too darling! Love it! I have quilted designs with Minkee backing and it also remains very soft and cuddly.
Don't know what to say about the quilting of it. But boy is that a cute quilt. My neice is having a boy in Jan. I would luv to make this but have never worked with Minkee and heard that it can be difficult.
I've only just finished my second quilt yesterday, and they both had minkee backing. I haven't had any problems (knock on wood!)
Now; DH has requested a quilt for our queen-sized bed with minkee backing... lets see how THAT goes...
Happiness is a new quilt and an old dog.
