Bella's quilt progress

I have all the blocks for Bella's quilt pieced together.  I think I need to move some of them around before I sew all the blocks together.  I don't think I am going to quilt it with the minkee.  I will use some very ugly fabric I found to quilt the top, then sew the minkee on pillow case style and tie it in a few strategic places.  I am doing this for a couple of reasons.  I don't want to interfere with the total softness of the minkee with all over quilting, and I have heard that quilting with minkee is a bear.  I think it will work very well the way I am going to do it.

Here is today's Jacob's Ladder block.
I also pulled some fabric for a project I am doing over at Modern 8 Create.

So far, I am really liking the color combinations.
Right now, I am going to go put my feet up and relax for a while.
Joyful quilting, everyone.

You certainly did have a lot of quilting over the weekend. I love the fussy fairies in B's quilt. Great colors too. Say hi for me! And joyful quilting to U2.

So cute!!!

I've heard that about minkee but that once you get accustomed to it - you learn the trick (whatever that may be). I made some pillows with it and it sure does stretch.

Love Bella's quilt...I had heard that about Minkee. Please update us on your blog on how it goes? I have some that was donated for my charity quilts, and I need to know how to handle it!
