Default Binding quilt with Minky backing

I just got a scrappy quilt back from my LAQ, so it's time to bind it. When I trim away the excess batting, I have 1/2" of the minky backing on all four sides. Is that enough pull up/over/around and use as a binding? Even though it shouldn't unravel, should I fold 1/4" under?

Thanks for your advice!

(I'll post a photo when it's finished)

That may be enough if you don't turn it under. The bulk of the minky may make it hard to turn. Is the raw edge of minky a little rough? I have not used it but have heard this statement before

I wouldn't want to use the Minky as binding. Just too bulky.

I think Micky has a tendency to "shed" at cut edges.
