Minkee babyquilt


There will only be a green border on it and than it is finished, but before I do that I have a question: I am using flanel as the backing, what should I do as stuffing or doesn't need it stuffing. The top is also totally with minkeefabrics, so it is already warm and adorable to touch.
Any ideas are welcome, also for the quilting. I don't want to quilt it much as it has to stay fluffy (hope I say the right word).
Now I am back to work on spring snapperland as I decided to go and stitch some more on that one. MTM stays in the freezer for awhile, maybe next week.

Adorable quilt and it even looks cuddly in the picture. I doubt that it needs any batting but how about a thin layer of flannel just for a little substance between it and the backing fabric?

Minkee is soooo soft to touch... how is it to quilt with?

I've always loved this pattern for a baby quilt! I back my Little Boys quilts with fleece and never use a middle layer (wadding/batting). I figure it will dry faster in the dryer without the middle layer! And, because I use soft fabrics (most his tops are flannel) - I never feel it is necessary.

Great job!

Cheers!
