    yes, it is hard to sew with! I have used it three times, as squares in my son's quilt and backing for crib quilts. It sheds like the dickens and is very slippery, but worth the effort when the quilt is complete!

    I used Minkee for backing on a couple of baby quilts. Its soft and snuggly but, man, it was a pain to quilt. It kept slipping and sliding in the machine. Much as I liked the feel of it, I wouldn't use it again.

    I used some small pieces of Minkee in a baby quilt that I hand quilted. I found it much harder to quilt through then other material, but the feel of it is great.
