|I knew I had to get started because I have several more customer quilts waiting in line. Still not knowing what I was going to do, I started the machine.|
I managed to work my way across the quilt, even though I still had a very vague idea of what I was doing. I think it turned out well and hopefully my customer will be pleased.
The back is minkee. As much as I love the feel of this fabric, I don't like to quilt it. My first and foremost objection is the way those soft little fibers want to pull through and pop up on top of the quilt. This is a problem when you have a very dark fabric on the top and a pastel on the back. My second reason is the static it can create. A friend of mine that works at our local quilt shop told me that they had a problem with the stitch regulator breaking. The repairman asked if they worked a lot with minkee backs. He went on to explain that they tend to create a lot of static electricity. I am just so happy it is done!
