So what if I keep using it and the binding isn’t even on yet…I love it! When it does go on, it’s blue.
I put blue Minky on the back. It wasn’t wide enough so I decided to add a stripe of yellow. Now, when you load Minky on the frame the stretch has to go side to side. With the blue, that was true. The yellow on the other hand, I cut two strips and sewed them end to end, the stretch of those was up and down. In theory, how big of a deal was this 9” strip going to make?
Even though it was pinned straight to the leaders it came out a bit crooked. In retrospect I could have avoided this by using the side clamps. BUT, I never use the side clamps because I couldn’t get used to them. On the other hand, this is a quilt that is meant to be used. It’s not destined for any quilt shows so really, does it matter? I’m happy with it, that’s all that matters!
The last time I worked with Minky it was a nightmare. I had all sorts of thread skips. This time, I had no issues what so ever.
I’ll definitely be using Minky again!!
