The Best and Worst of Minkee

Minkee is such a wonderful soft fabric to use on the back of a quilt and many customers bring it to me.  I have no trouble quilting it on my long arm machine. However, I caution my customers to be careful to choose a color of minkee that does not contrast with the quilt top colors or the color of thread used in quilting.  Little bits of fiber from the minkee can be pulled to the top of the quilt during the quilting process causing a less than satisfactory visual effect. Instead, choose a color similar to the color of thread you would like for the quilting or similar to the main tone of the quilt whether it is light or dark. Then you'll have the bestpossible result and a beautiful soft quilt.
