Just got this sucker out of the wash. I finished it last night and the baby shower is today at 2:30 - nothing like waiting until the last minute. This was the first time I ever worked with Minky Dot - I love that stuff! It's difficult to tell in the photo, but the thin border is a solid pink while the zigzag is a subtle tone on tone pattern. The baby's room is pale blue with yellow/white chevron curtains and pink accents. I hope she likes it...

Thanks for the compliments.

Don't be scared. I asked for tips on working with minky on another message board and they gave me these tips:
- Use spray basting - it's expensive, but worth EVERY cent.
- Pin the bejezus out of it - it's slippery and likes to slide around while you're sewing, the spray basting actually took care of that problem for me, but I pinned the heck out of it just in case.
- When possible, try to quilt/sew with the nap of the minky. I quilted in the ditch, so this wasn't always possible, but I found that once it was washed, it really wasn't evident at all
- use a walking foot - I actually forgot to change out to a walking foot and didn't have an issue.
