I finished the baby quilt with the minkee backing and it turned out to be a beautiful little quilt. The hardest part to me was pinning the minkee onto the leaders because that's when it wanted to really stretch. Once I got the backing on, and everything else loaded, I said a little prayer, and away I went!! Absolutely no problems, whatsoever!! I really like the way it sewed, too. I never had to adjust my tension, or make any other adjustments in the course of quilting the quilt. Everytime I would get through with one turn, I would grab my flashlight and lay on the floor to admire the beautiful straight backing!!! (I was keeping my sick granddaughter, and she would lie down on the floor with me and admire the handiwork!!) I was so surprised that there was absolutely no puckering whatsoever. Here are a few pictures of the quilt. I did overall loops and I think it turned out great. My friend was very happy when she came to pick it up.
This is a close up picture of the front of the quilt. Made out of pastel Batiks. My friend did a great job, didn't she?

The dimples minkee fabric!! I still can't believe there were no puckers!!

Thank you to those of you who gave me some very good advice and wonderful words of encouragement!!! Now I'm ready to tackle one for my grandson who is due the first of September!!!
