    been so frustrated with a quilt that you celebrated when it was "done"! I have been working on this project for several weeks. I love the fabric - its perfect for my boss's second born son (my boss is an Anthropologist). I wanted to use black as an accent/backing. I saw the "minky" fabric and thought it would be wonderful. Black, but soft for a baby. Well...... after struggling with it, sewing/ripping out and sewing again. Tonight I finished it. The binding still twisted, but I'm done! I just can't take it out again. LOL

    Your boss will love it and of course the baby will too. It's a nice quilt that he will be able to cuddle up with for years.

    Good job on this.

    Good job! I like the way that the red makes a secondary pattern and the monkey's are really cute!

    It is adorable! I wouldn't worry about it too much. After it gets washed, it won't be noticeable. Minkee is really hard to work with and you have to pin...pin...pin!!!
