Half of my quilts are backed with minky. The longarm lady loves working with it, and it's the best for snuggling. I bind it normally with a fabric that compliments the front.

Why does it have to be just a man's quilt? I know many a woman who'd love to curl up under that on a cold winter's night in front of a roaring fire.
