How funny - I recently started quilting with Minky, having a very good and then a frustrating experience, related directly to the quality of the minky fabrics.
The minky we'd got at JoAnn fabrics a couple years ago - frustrating and inferior in quality and feel to that which I used in "Hugs and Kisses from Above." I won't use it again, even in charity quilts.
Yesterday my post related to that experience, and this morning I have an email announcing a sale at the place where the Real Minky (the good stuff) came from. I'm sure there are other sources of this good minky - so check your local quilt shops, too.
But just in case anyone's considering trying the minky that I used last month - the kind that made my college-bound daughter say, "I want to be a baby, too!" - here is the link for that delectable Real Minky:
The particular minky we LOVED was found through this thumbnail pathway:
Minky Solids > Minky Smooth Fabrics.
Have a good day!
