Lazy Daisy Finish

Babies Babies Everywhere!
I'm trying to keep up with the need for baby quilts,
but it's becoming a challenge.
 I recently found out my niece is expecting her second child
and we couldn't be happier. 
She will find out what she is having soon

I hope she is having a girl.

Lazy Daisy is finished!!

I quilted this with straight lines along the triangles and then
meandered in the border.

This is the first time I have used Minky on the back.
It wasn't as bad as I had anticipated,
but I pinned the heck out of it when I basted it.

It did have a lot more drag when quilting though.
I just love the texture it gives to the back of the quilt.

When using Minky as the backing,
do you still add batting?
I use very thin batting,
but this little quilt is rather heavy....

..... and oh so cuddly!

Happy Quilting!

So pretty! I have never used Minky, so will be interested in following the other comments on your post.

That is so sweet and I am sure it feels heavenly with the plush backing. I have done it both ways - with and without batting. I prefer the batting in when I use it. Without batting, it makes a light blanket, but I am not crazy about the way the quilt drapes. It seems less durable to me. The quilts that I have made for the grandchildren with the batting have held up for years.

I love this! Great fabrics. I have only used Minkee once and did not use batting and wasn't real happy with it. I think I would use a thin poly when I make one again.
