Default Baby Boy Quilt with Minky

Thanks to the helpful suggestions of others on the QB, I have finished up my first minky backed quilt without a hitch! Walking foot wavy quilted lines were stitched with Superior Bottom Line thread (top & bottom) and it worked beautifully on the Juki! I would make another crib sized minky but nothing larger - it's a lot to lug under the needle. Of course, I may change my mind if I ever splurge on a longarm.

Had fun making this one - thanks for looking

It's a real pretty 'boy' quilt. I love the fabric you used in the binding. I haven't tried quilting Minky yet. Yours turned out great.

Thanks toogie - the pictures really don't do justice to how stinkin' cute this quilt really is.. The fabrics are much more brilliant and the navy blue has a cute little whale print. A dear friend purchased the fabrics and I simply made the quilt for her to give to a co-worker (unknown to me). The minky is actually mint green.

Great finish...I’m glad you had a good experience with minky. I found it fairly easy to quilt on my DSM and it makes for a cuddly quilt.

Great job with that minky, Christine. I have some but I'm too intimidated to use it! The little whales are adorable.
