    Started this one Friday night, finished by noon Saturday! I backed it with chocolate brown Minky, and it is SOOOOOO SOFT!

    This one is a gift to a friend I am working with on a two person show " Tuesdays with " Morrie", which she directed and I costumed. The gift was inspired by a stage prop quilt I made for Morrie, he wanted to keep his quilt as a memory, so I made one for the other actor and for the director. They are all very good friends of mine!

    Then I quilted and bound this one!

    Also backed with Minky! I love this backing on quilts, so soft and cuddly! This quilting pattern and the double slice layer cake are my "go to" quilt patterns for fun and easy quilts for gift quilts!

    You're really an "energizer bunny"! That's a lot of work done, and they're very pretty, too.

    I love the soft colors of the yellow, grey and white.

    So good to hear from you Jean! Of course in true GB style i LOVE the scrappy one!!!! I've yet to try minky for backing... must commit to that... mostly because "using up my stuff" is in the front of my mind... Just cannot imagine WHAT will happen with it all after i go

    Gorgeous quilts Jean, as always. Quick question. When you back with minky do you still need to use batting? Just seems like it might be a little thick.

    Jean, that's a beautiful quilt and a fabulous reason to make it. You've found a way to memorialize the great experience of a theatrical production with a most meaningful momento. Really nicely done!

    I'm as curious as Carol: Do you use batting when you back a quilt with Minky?
    Toni ... If I keep sewing long enough, will they make their own dinner?

    Jean your quilts are beautiful--They always are.
    Now I'm adding my question about Minky. How do you pin it for quilting? Does it stretch a lot? I've not sewed with Minky, but know that I'd love the cuddly feeling of it. Thanks for posting and answering.

    You are no doubt a machine. Wonderful and beautiful.
    Blessed are the children of the piecemakers for they shall inherit the quilts!
