    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 agree, I think some large meandering would be nice in the background.

    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...
