More Minky Blankets

My boys loved the first minky blanket that I made so much that I had to make another one.  They call the first one the "Elephant Blanket" and told me that the second one needed elephants as well.

I gathered my minky scraps, added some new elephant fabric, and pieced it together.

The backing is this ultra fuzzy gray rosette minky.

It has scraps from nine different quilts including a couple different reds and blues.  It finishes about 60 by 70 inches.

I love how the blue brightens up a black, white and red quilt.

While I had all my minky scraps out and my studio was already a fuzzy minky mess, I couldn't resist making one more.

This mini minky blanket finishes about 30 inches square.

It has scraps from six different projects.  Monkey loves it!

The backing is this red dotty minky.  It was much harder than even the rosette minky to work with due to how stretchy it is.

My boys have already asked for another elephant blanket.  The cute elephant minky also comes in navy blue.  We'll see how long it takes until I cave in and buy it.  It took over an hour to clean my studio after making both of these.


P.S.  I will be linking up with some of the fun parties on my sidebar.  Check them out for more quilty inspiration.


  1. Those are cute! I need to get into my minky scrap bin and see what I can make.

  2. I really like the rounded corners you added to each of these finishes, Jasmine! It does seem like having one elephant minky blanket for each boy makes sense... Ooh boy, an hour cleaning up? That sounds about right!

  3. Hi Jasmine, those are really cute quilts! I have a friend who wants me to make her son a Halloween cat costume, so I think that I'll get my first experience with minky soon :-)

  4. Great idea for left over minkee and so cute!

  5. Very cute minkees! How sweet that your kiddos ask for more elephants. It's fun when they are happy to use what you make.

  6. I can totally see why your boys love them so much; the softness is apparent through the computer screen ha!

  7. Very cuddly, of course the boys love them :)

  8. So cute and cuddlesome - best of both worlds. Love the rosette backing.

  9. The blue really does brighten up the black, white and red, and the elephants are so cute! I can see why your boys are wanting you to make another one :)
