I used minky for the first time and I loved it! I really like pieced backs, but this made it so much softer and cuddly. I bound it with the premade sateen binding folded over several times. This quilt has several nice textures.
Although you can still see some of the minky dots, I was surprised at how they disappeared when compared to the unquilted fabric. I used a swirly pantograph because it matches the swirls in one of the fabrics.
The pattern is called "Adding Up Nicely", so I thought I should give it some calculators to enjoy. (You can get the pattern, for free, by contacting Cheryl of MeadowMistDesigns.)
My son also received some antique math blocks for Christmas, so I grabbed them for a bit.
And I taught the quilt about the commutative property.
Finally my son came over to see all the commotion and to push buttons on the calculator. (He does love pushing buttons!)
