It is no secret that my family loves quilts with minky. I have ended up with a lot of minky scraps that are in strips (leftover backing pieces). I found some great fuzzy minky on clearance that I could use as a backing plus some cute elephant minky. I decided to add that to my scraps and make a minky strip quilt.
I added one row at a time and sewed through it in a quilt as you go fashion. I pinned each strip down at my cutting table.
Then I sewed through it on my little Pfaff with the built in walking foot.
I kept adding strips until it was done. Then I trimmed it up and added my first minky binding. Next time I would round the corners even more to make it easier. All in all I ended up with a really cute and super cuddly minky blanket.
Between the strips and the binding I think I used scraps from eight different quilts. The only problem is that there is one blanket and five of us. I'm now on the lookout for more ultra fuzzy minky for another minky scrap blanket.
P.S. I will be linking up with some of the fun parties on my sidebar. Check them out for more quilty inspiration.
