Minkes fabric has really become popular lately. I get lots of questions about using it as a backing for quilts. I've done quite a few quilts with the minkes, and it quilts up nicely.
It does have a little stretch to it, but it doesn't seem to cause any problems. I do need 4-6 inches past the edge of the quilt top on all sides to work with. So if your quilt is 50 x 70, then you'd need a backing piece 58 x 78 or larger.
The minkes can be pieced to make a larger backing of needed, or Roellofs store carries wide minkee, too.

I have been getting quite a few calls with quilts lately, and my schedule is now filled until after Christmas. If you've already made arrangements for a quilts to be done before Christmas, your name is on the list & I am planning on getting it done, but will be unable to fit in any more until January.
It is hard to believe that Thanksgiving is only just over 2 weeks away, and then Christmas will be here before we know it!
Thanks for all your business in 2014!

Just quilted up this lap-sized quilt that will be at Roelof's store as a sample for the pattern they are carrying called "Chopsticks" by Jaybird Quilts. Aren't the blues & greens pretty in this quilt?
I quilted it using the "Asian Leaves" pattern.

School is out for the year... which means less time in the quilting studio. I will still be doing quilts this summer, but I may not get them back to you as fast as I do when the kids are at school. If you have a quilt with a deadline, make sure to get on the schedule early, so that you will be able to have your quilt back by the time you need it.
