    This quilt a friend picked the fabrics I used all but the yellow which i thought was just the wrong yellow... I had thought about framing the blocks with it but it looked bad.. I am happy it is done but I am not sure why it seems to not look good to me,;( any suggestions ideas> ? I really dislike the blue color .. generally that may be it.. There is brown minki that goes on the back of this..
    Help./. ??

    What is a minki?

    I think it would look nice with small sashing framing the blocks.

    You know how it is, you see a fabric or collection and you instantly fall in love. I bet your friend will flip when she sees your creation made from her fabric prints!

    Can you give any tips on backing a quilt with Minkee? I'm so scared of that stuff. Love it, but I'm afraid to work with it.

    minki is that plush soft baby fabric with the dots it is great on blankies;).

    what about yellow sashing? I thought it just broke it all up and looked odd but at the time i only had 4 blocks done.. Hmm

    Just use it like fabric.. I take it to a machine quilter and they have no issue with it at all. I even had one done with the softer fabric that is little tufted swirls SO SOFT !!

    Even though this was not your favorite project, look at it as a learning experience - also hold your piece up to different colored walls or fabric swatches. That will help you get a better feel for the color scheme. If this is your friend's quilt let her decide where to go from here. Personally, I like it as is.
