binding with minky backing
1 Attachment(s)
How do you bind your quilt when you select a minky backing? I folded it to the front and used the "darning" zig zag stitch to secure because I didn't know what else to do.

I would think minky would make it too bulky. I haven't used minky so I don't really know.

Half of my quilts are backed with minky. The longarm lady loves working with it, and it's the best for snuggling. I bind it normally with a fabric that compliments the front.

I would use a wide binding, at least 1" finished.

Jenny Doan has a great tutorial on folding Minky to the front for binding. I used it for a quilt for my GD. Minky does not ravel so you only have to sew over one layer of fabric, not bulky at all. I used Elmers school glue instead of pins and used a serpentine stitch. Came out perfect.

I make regular cotton binding and bind my Minky backed quilts the same as all my other quilts. The only difference for me is I cut my strips 2 1/2” wide , regular cotton quilts I cut 2 1/4” .

I think that looks great and having the soft Minky on the Edge will make the quilt more comfy.

I used Minky once on a baby quilt and did a wide binding of quilting cotton.
