    I do not do my own quilting - wish that I were talented in that way. A LQS quilted it with FMQ leaves. Someone else has responded re. how difficult/easy it is to quilt on Minkee. I do know that it was more difficult to put the binding on because my pressure foot wanted to slide off the edge. However, I feel that it was worth the effort because I love the Minkee on the back. I found that I just had to stitch slower than normal and have a firm grip on both sides (above and below the pressure foot) of the fabric to keep a consistent seam.

    Opps, and I just noticed, the backing picture that I posted is for another quilt that I did with the same fabric on the front and the same Minkee backing. The third quilt was actually quilted with medium meandering. I will post that other quilt at another time.

    They are all beautiful quilts. Got to put one of these on my bucket list. If I live to be 200, I won't finish it.

    Those are nice. A great pattern for the large print fabrics I have and love, but don't really know what to do with!

    Jo-Ann carries it too and you can use your 40% off coupon. It is the most luxurious feeling fabric ever.

    Those are nice quilts, pretty colors. I like that pattern. Looks fast and easy a good way to use some large scale prints! Thanks for sharing.

    Beautiful! I do believe I know which LQS you went to :) Are you a part of the Hill N Hollow quilters? If so, I am Breanne - I did the night meeting lotto blocks for 2010...

    These are all beautiful! Looks like you may could use the 10" bundles to make them? Or is the largest square too big for that? Really nice!

    Yes, Breanne, I am a HnH member and attend both the day and night meetings. It was quilted by Donna at T&S.
