    These quilts were fairly simple - - all straight seams. All were made from the pattern "The Big Block Quilt Pattern", designed by Minay Studios from Black Cat Creations. If interested in the pattern and you can't find it in your LQS, you can put the title in your internet search engine and find it on-line. They are supposed to finish 53" x 71" but mine varied a little. So, while I sewed a fairly straight line, my 1/4" seam was obviously not perfect. If interested, the quilt can also be made larger with additional borders (width) or blocks (length).

    Awesome - I love how each section is framed - really pulls together the whole thing.

    And the quilting - oh my, that is spectacular!

    WOW! Look so great for such a simple pattern. It's the skinny sashing that makes it POP. Nice quilting, too! Thanks for sharing

    Re. What is "Minkee"?

    Difficult to explain. It is sort of like short pile fleece. Very textural and soft. Came in 60" width and can be expensive ($16/yard). However, I participated in a LQS scavenger hunt. The prize was 10 yards of fabric at each quilt shop for half price. When I claimed my prize at one quilt shop I purchased the Minkee fabric at half price so $8/yd. Minkee comes in smooth and different textures. If you google it on-line you could see pictures of the different textures.

    I've heard Minkee is very hard to work with! Your quilting looks great on it. Did you do your own quilting? If so, do you quilt for others?

    Those are so pretty. I'm glad you showed a picture of the back with the quilting of minkee. I was wondering how that would turn out. I was leery about trying to quilt it because it stretches so much. Did you have a hard time with it at all?

    I've been looking for something to make my DG a quilt. I have some fabric that's right up her alley, but I hate to cut it because it will ruin the pattern of the fabric. Thanks for posting it. I love your quilt!

    I have quilted with the Minkee fab on the bottom (backing) and it does very good. But once apon a time I quilted with the Minkee on top (quilt top) and it did not do well at all, because of the stretchyness of the fab.
