Grace's baby quilt

I saw a minky dot quilt in my local fabric shop. I wrote down the color combinations/patterns. It is a variation of a 9 patch quilt. Then I bought the fabric!

I used the technique's in Nancy Johnson-Srebro's book on preparing fabric and cutting squares to cut the different sized squares.

I used my Singer Featherweight 221 machine to piece together the blocks. Unfortunately, oops, I ironed on part of my minky dot fabric and I ironed some of the dots out!

I ended up making another baby quilt for a friend in yellows and greens, but this one will be my favorite!

batting NEW
by: Anonymous

I have used low loft batting in a minky blanket, just to make it that little bit warmer. It turned out perfect

More info, please -- did you use batting?

Your quilt is adorable and looks snuggly-soft. I need to whip up a quick baby blanky/quilt for a favorite teacher who is having her first baby soon, and I'd like to combine Minky fabrics with cotton quilting fabrics (I'm thinking the Eric Carle Very Hungry Caterpillar prints would be really cute). I have found some Minky quilt projects where the directions say you don't need any batting, but I thought at least a low-loft cotton batting would help even out the thicknesses between the Minky fabrics and the cotton ones. I'm just nervous because I can't find anyone else who has used batting in a Minky quilt and I'm wondering if there's a reason why I shouldn't do it!! Thanks for sharing.

Great colors!

I love the combination of the different fabrics. The colors go so well together. I like the dot fabric and the dancer fabric. :)
