Duck Duck Goose Baby Quilt

When I was at LSQ couple of weeks ago I saw this new Moda flannel fabrics "Duck Duck Goose", it was love at first sight. Even though I have promised to myself not to buy more fabrics. I had to give-in to my temptation when I saw this fabric line. The flannel is absolutely cuddly and as luxurious as Minky fabrics. And I had the perfect shade of Minky dot fabric to go with.

First I was thinking of making a rag quilt, then thought of just simply pieced squares and finally it ended up like this and I love it.

Quilting
I am thinking of keeping the quilting simple to retain its cuddly and soft texture. I might even use one of the decorative stitch to quilt in the ditch for the Minky fabric, wavy lines in the border and something fun in the blocks itself. This is the only thing I still haven't decided.

Have you worked with Minky fabrics in the quilt peicing? Would love to hear your experience on it.

  1. This is adorable and it must feel amazing!!! I have a love/hate relationship with Minky... it's super stretchy and the thickness makes it hard to quilt but the result is so snuggly. Baste excessively and keep your quilting simple and all should go well!
