    Minkee Used on Baby Blanket

    Recently made this for a new niece. Backed it with minkee and had no problem FMQing using my home machine. On this one I did put a very thin batting between the layers...kind of a stabilizer. Have used minkee on chemo blankets with nothing between. The Butterfly Breeze pattern is by Vicki Stratton.

    That is a very pretty quilt and the minkee makes them so cuddly.

    Sneed - your blanket is just beautiful! The quilting is gorgeous as well. I've got to FMQ a quilt with Minkee on the back today. I'm not looking forward to it, as I don't like working with it. You should be so proud of the wonderful job you did. The colors are so happy!!

    Love the fabrics you used! I use Minkee for the backing of baby quilts and really like the way they turn out after quilting them. So soft and warm!

    Double fold binding machine stitched to the front and hand stitched to the back. Really a fun quilt to do.
