I am not sure about you but here in Central Ontario, it has been hot lately.
We are all trying to stay cool; having a pool certainly does help.
Here is what I have been up to in the past several weeks.
Kaye brought me this adorable baby quilt. It has minky on the back and the
top is similar to minky, in texture and touch but not as thick.
My only concern was that the backing would stretch on the frame and when
it comes off, it is not flat at all. So, if you are working with minky, make sure
there is alot of backing fabric and load the length of the backing along the
length of the frame.
This ensures that the stretch runs along the length of the frame and it
won’t stretch as much.
Ask me how I know this? I ruined one baby quilt this way so I have
learned from that experience. And yes, it was my own baby quilt, thank
God. I would have been very upset if it belonged to a customer of mine.
Evelyn pieced this baby quilt and I quilted it. It is really cute and the fabric
is lovely. If I remember correctly, this is for an upcoming new baby.
Evelyn wanted some daisies all over the top and we used a light purple
polyester thread for the top and the backing.
Evelyn also made this baby quilt too. She was making sure that she had both of
the genders covered. Daisies were stitched onto this top too.
I forget the thread color we used but it matched the top, for sure.
The backing is cute and cuddly.
I really like the color of the backing.
Hope you enjoy your week. I am linking up with

Nice quilting! The daisies are cute.
Lovely….I had a similar experience with minky. I hand quilted it, but had it in the frames wrong.
Shrunk back when taken out…lol.
Awesome work – thanks for the great tip re the minky!
