    quilting with minkee

    I wanted to get some quick quilts done. There is no piecing on them, they are just the cotton fabric, batting, and minkee on the back. They are all machine quilted on my long arm. I am working on binding them today. One done...and three to go!!! Thanks for looking

    forgot to say that they are the wof by 50 inches. Just big enough to be a lap quilt.

    I think whole cloth quilts are wonderful. They were often done as quick necessary covers and I like the idea that it was definitely meant to be used. Yours are great!

    These are like the ones I have for my kids and my kids USE their quilts...lol....as tents, to drag each other around on, pretty much they are for everything. I like making quilts to last. Quilting really helps makes the difference too.

    Very nice! I'd like to back one of my quilts with minkee and was wondering if it would still be possible to have someone machine quilt it for me. Now I know it can be done!

    Yes, it can be done. I've heard people say that it stretches to much, but they must be pulling it to tight when they are quilting. It works fine!!!!
