More Minkee

I made these two minkee quilts for Andrew and Elizbeth and finished them just in time for Elizabeth's birthday party last Saturday.

I bought the Dr Seuss minkee in Shipshewana at the Cuddle Corner in the Davis Merchantile. The black, red, blue and white are from Joann's, bought either on sale or with a coupon.

I stitched the strips together with the serger, just like Julie did and like Calise's. It is so much easier to have that mess all contained when I loaded them on the longarm.

I used the same panto, Turbulence on both and they have Hobbs 80/20 batting.

Elizabeth's has red minkee backing and red thread

And Andrew's has blue backing and blue thread. I LOVE this Dr Seuss fabric I got at Joann's for the binding.

I just rolled them up and tied with a ribbon and Liz opened hers first. We told Andrew to open his and he said, "It's going to be just like hers!" They are very similar, I must admit.
Look at the cute Nana labels I added.

Your minkee quilts always amaze me. I have bought minkee and it hasn't left the bag because all the fuzz that was created at the store when cutting it scared me, so I was afraid to open it up here at home, but serging it might just be the answer. I'll think about it. :/

I like both of your minkee quilts and particularly like the panto. I don't think I've seen that one before.
