    Default Minkee fabric

    Do I have to use special thread and a different needle for minkee fabric? (Like we did when we made garments using knit fabrics) And should I use a different stitch on the machine, e.g. zigzag? Also should I use batting between the cotton top and the minkee backing? Also can you FMQ minkee fabric the same way as cotton fabric? I would love some advice on using minkee for quilts. Any comments would be greatly appreciated.

    I did a lot of research before making my Minky baby quilt (Over the Kitchen Counter: Angie's Place for Cooking and Crafts: Minky Baby Quilt) and wrote a Top Ten Tips post with all the information I got. You can read it here:
    Over the Kitchen Counter: Angie's Place for Cooking and Crafts: Top 10 Tips when Working with Minky

    Hope that helps! It's so soft and not that hard or scary to work with at all! (I include a great tutorial I thought was the best from all I watched).
