Welcome to today’s stop on the Quilter’s Newsletter Best Kids Quilts 2015 Blog Tour. Thanks for checking me out!
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.
Start with “Making Minky Easy – My Best Tips for Working With Minky“.
And, if you are thirsty for more, read “Making Minky Easy – My Best Binding Method“.
The pattern for this quilt, “Tiger Eye” is available from my website, Jenny Kae Quilts.
And now for some free stuff! We have two different prizes. You have one week to enter!
