    Minky patchwork Quilt

    I'm a forever beginning quilter. You really can't teach an old dog new tricks. I would love to make a Minky patchwork quilt for my grandson soon to arrive. It creeps and crawls-not the baby--he's not here yet--but the material. I know pin, pin, pin. That helps but is there something I'm missing?

    I have done this but I have heard other quilters say they lay a piece of tissue paper either on top or the bottom (can't remember which) of the seam that they are.sewing. after the seam is sewn just tear the tissue paper off. I wouldn't worry about the little ittty bitty pieces that get stuck under the stitches as it will eventually dislodge and dissolve in the wash

      The minky has one direction that it stretches but not in the other direction.

        Would using a walking foot help?
