    Leftover minky

    I’ve used minky on the back of the last few quilts I have created. Anybody have a good idea for using up those extra pieces? My stash is getting too large!

      I make "mice" out of it for my cats to play with. A rectangle filled with those little bits of batting, a pinch of cat nip, and a scrap of rickrack for a tail.

      If I ever got it all together, I'd be too tired to do anything with it.

        I make pillows. Minky is very tough. When I use it on the back of quilts, it lasts way longer than the top. Makes great pillows for the floor or just on the couch.

          I would make baby quilts. I love making strip baby quilts.

            Can you post a photo please? Any tips for cutting smaller pieces and strips of minky?

              It stretches very easily so use a lot of pins. Draw cutting lines on the back of the fabric. Also, keep a vacuum handy. Also, I use half inch seams with minky - easier to get seams to lie flat.

            I make quiet books for babies. I cut out shape from cotton fabric and create a negative space Then I sew minky on back of fabric and have a nice “Pat the Cat” page. I have no pictures but here is drawing. The orange represents minky, the checked green the cotton fabric.
