Wow, you're ambitious. I love your colors and pattern.
I've only ever used minkee for a backing, so I've never pieced it.

I'm working with the brown minkee now, and you are so right, very messy!

So far it is very slippery to work with but so soft and pretty

Wow. Very pretty. I've never worked with minkee before. I love the softness but fear working with it.

You are brave! I've used minkee for a 4" border on a baby quilt, but would never dare try it in smaller squares & such.
