    Default Any tips for quilting minky?

    I'm getting ready to baste and quilt a panel quilt with minky on the back. I have a sit down longarm so it should go pretty fast. The only time I've quilted a quilt with minky, it was on a longarm frame. I thought I'd ask for tips in case anyone has any helpful ones! Thanks 

    I just made a baby quilt with minky backing. I chickened out and tied the quilt instead of trying to quilt it.

    I think you will be fine. I find that it's best to do something like a large meander. Do you have batting or just the minky and the top? And don't forget to have the vacuum handy!
    Before I got my longarm, I spray basted my quilts. But, I always put a large safety pin on each corner so that if it caught on something, it would not separate the layers. Found this out the hard way.

    I have quilted it on my longarm, and it turned out great.

    I quilted a baby quilt with minky on the back and didn't have any problems at all. I straight-stitched it with my walking foot.
