    T is it True? H is it Helpful? I is it Inspiring? N is it Necessary? K is it Kind?

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    You did a real nice job. I have never seen the pattern before with the pattern you used in the first 3 quilts. What is it's name??

    Do you have some words of wisdom about quilting with minkie? I have not tried it for fear of failure.
    I hope there are sewing machines in Heaven

    Beautiful, and oh, so cuddly! Did you have to use a special needle or thread to work on the Minky? I made something with it and had a lot of problems (domestic machine, cheapie). Oops, just noticed I'm repeating Persnikety's question - sorry! I'd like to try it again in a mood of serenity instead of panic! (Think smoking motor, Fabric-Eating bobbin, etc.)

    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    Lovely quilts and beautiful quilting. That's a great pattern, and of course, I love your snowman too. I cannot imagine trying to quilt minky, so my hat's off to you for such a wonderful job.

    I did one minky quilt on a domestic, it was a strip quilt. When doing it I used the spray adhesive and sandwich minky batting minky and sewed your strips as you went. (VERY heavy) All of my minky quilts I now put on my longarm machine, As long as you put the stretchiest direction of the fabric left and right in quilts up wonderful. I also release my roller bars so they are not quite so tight as well as the side clamps. I have a ton more pictures of ones that have done, just need time to transfer them. The top three pictures are a variation of a 5yard quilt. (The blocks are mixed up a bit more). i also like how the stitches sink into the fabrics.....
    Thank you for all the kind comments.

    Have tried crocheting, in fact many years ago did a lot of Granny square aphgans. I am also recently learning to knit (someday I would like to be able to make my own mittens. But for now I only know one stitch. I have lots of tatted doilies from My Grandma-In-law that I was given when she passed away. I just LOVE them so try and use them around my house.

    This are beautiful. I'm intimidated to try minky on the back of my quilts and here you've done a lot of them splendidly.

    Your quilting makes using Minky easy! If I could make mine as nice as yours I'd try again!
