    Default Baby Blanket Minky Backing?

    I bought some Minky with bumps to use for crib quilts, but now I am afraid the bumps won't be good for that use, maybe TOO bumpy. What do others think?

    The bumps are very soft. Perfect for a baby blanket. I didn't use them in my granddaughters quilt because I went cheaper with the plain Minky for the backing. If money wasn't an issue I would have used the dots.

    First of all, welcome to the forums!!

    Jenny had a tutorial about the Minky baby blankets. She used the "bumpy" ones as well for a baby-rag quilt. I haven't ordered the bumpy minky fabrics myself but I see a lot of these blankets made on etsy or elsewhere. For babies. So I don't think they're too bumpy

    Life is like a party. You invite a lot of people; some go, some join you, some laugh with you, some didnít come. But in the end, after the fun, there would be a few who would clean up the mess with you. And most of the time, those were the uninvited ones.

    The minky is so soft I think it would be fine. BTW, welcome to the forum.

    The bumps will go flat if you iron them.....ask me how I know. I used the bumpy Minkie in a quilt caught it after the first time. I used a 1/2" seam allowance as well good luck
