This weekend, in an attempt to finish my faux string quilt, I headed over to my Local Quilt Shop to get some more Kona Snow. I didn't even know if she would have any in stock, (as she doesn't stock much of the Kona solids), but I figured it was as good of an excuse as any to go look at fabric. Thankfully she had just enough left on the bolt. It must have been my lucky day.
While I was there I spied some Minky that she had on sale.... 40% off? Yeah, that always deserves a second look. Brown and aqua polka dots had been my original plan for the back, but some soft and comfy aqua Minky? Umm... I think I might need to reconsider. Sure, why not, I'll give it a try. I am a little concerned on how it will machine quilt, but she assured me that as long as I use a walking foot it should go pretty smoothly. Have any of you ever used minky as a backing for a quilt? Do you have any suggestions or tips for me? If not, wish me luck and I will let you know how it goes.
Besides, why should Minky just be reserved for babies? I want to snuggle under a comfy Minky throw this winter, as well. :)
