    Scrappy King Quilt with Minkee Back

    This quilt is from Board Member MarieM. She lives in Montana and contacted me the day before I was traveling her way. How lucky was that. She just wanted something simple on her quilt as she has pets that like to share. She pieced minkee for the back of that large quilt which was 120 x 120, I did that once for a queen and said never again. I give her a lot of credit for piecing it. Lesson I learned never quilt that large of a quilt with minkee as about a quarter way through the quilt keeps getting heavier and heavier around the seams. But it was a lot of fun to quilt. Hope MarieM is having fun binding that huge quilt and I hope she likes it. Thanks Marie and thanks to all of you for looking.
