    My DGD's Chevron with a Minkee Back

    My sweet 7 yo DGD informed me she was the only one in her family that didn't have a minkee quilt - so this is what she's going to have. This pic is fresh off the frame, before I did get the binding put on. A really quick pattern to make up -- I used 8" squares for my (4) hst (laid one neutral, one color right sides together, stitched 1/4" from the edge, 'x' cut), ended up being appx 49" X 49" finished size. The back is a Dr. Seuss minkee print. quilted with circles.
    Thanks for looking!

    There is nothing better than a quilt with minkee. I don't blame her for asking...lol. They are the best when it's chilly. She's going to love it. The chevron is a great pattern.
    enjoy your life...it's the only one you have!!!

    Great quilt and the quilting is perfect for it!! Who doesn't LOVE minkee backed quilts? I'm making one for each of my three grandkids for Christmas this year. The first only needs binding. Will post when finished.
