For those of you who are uncertain about quilting with minky, I have some blogs dealing with minky and sharing my best tips for “Making Minky Easy”.

How to Stuff An Owl, My Best Tips for Working With Minky and My Best Binding Method.

If you have any minky questions, I encourage you to check them out.

And speaking of minky, I have a new pattern!  It is called Wonkey Donkey.  It is available from my website, Jenny Kae Quilts – Patterns.  It is also a great pattern for novelty prints that you want to showcase.

Best Kids Quilts 2015 Blog Tour

Welcome to today’s stop on the Quilter’s Newsletter Best Kids Quilts 2015 Blog Tour.  Thanks for checking me out!

Cuddle Kid

Take a close look at my quilt “Cuddle Kid”. Notice something about my quilt that is different from some of the other quilts in this issue?  My quilt is made with Cuddle  Pre-cuts from Shannon Fabrics, also called minky, that super-soft fabric you can’t help but touch when you walk by.

But, do you just walk by and not take any home?  Do you have questions about how to sew with minky? Then keep reading.  I made this quilt with you in mind.  First, I used Shannon Fabric Cuddle Pre-cuts!  (Pre-cut minky, that’s awesome!)

I kept the size small so you can try on a smaller project first. And I left the design very simple so you can focus on working with the new fabric.

I started just where you are, wanting to sew with minky but unsure how. If you want to learn more, I have three blog posts where I share all the info and tricks that worked for me.
