Just Like a Cloud!

Minky is a staple in most of the baby quilts I do, but it is a real challenge to quilt a pieced minky top with a minky back. I told my client that I had only tried this once before and she might be disappointed with the outcome. There is no way to control all that elasticity. 
Stretch from North, South, East and West! 
These are actually two identical quilts: each about 36 x 46. I put on a single piece for the back and batting.  Then placed the tops side by side and alternately quilted them as I moved down the frame.

Hmm....looks better once you get it unpinned from the design wall.
Simple lines, just enough quilting to hold it all together.
Hobbs 80/20 batting. 
Oh yeah, it's yummy to feel....
So puffy, soft and cloud-like.
