Thanks, so much Nancy & everyone else, too!  I will check that out.  I'm also planning on going to the Sewing Expo in Raleigh in June.  Maybe there will be some good contacts there, too.  Have a super day!

I quilted a quilt for a friend yesterday that had a minkee backing.  Has anyone done that on their longarms?  It went better than I thought but I did have to fight the stretch a little.  I think I need to try this a couple more times to understand the best way to make it work but I was happy with the outcome.  The quilt is going to be used for a baby quilt.  It is made of curtains from the 50's (the cowboy blocks) and I think it is really neat.

Jeanine, that is so cute, love the cowboy theme. I've never quilted on minky, I did use it on my MIL lap quilt for the back but I tied the quilt.

Jeanine

The quilt is really cute.  Minkee is a little harder to quilt with but the end result is beautiful.

Jeanine, I have quilted on my longarm with minkey.  I used the selvage edges on the bars so I didn't have stretch and the rest worked out great.

I quilted a twin size with fleece on the back. I pinned the layers together then loaded it on my frame. It worked great and I had no problems.

I finally finished my client's 1930's qult. She just wanted the binding replaced but the fabric around the border was so weak and the batting was shot. So, it was a complete rebuild.  Can you spot the flower pot and flower centers that I replaced? I hope not! I ended up replacing the batting and backing as well. I hand quilted the quilt, OMG am I out of the Longarm share now? LOL! Miss Jewel is lonely!

Great job redoing that quilt, JudyLee.  I am not even going to guess at what you replaced.  It all looks beautiful.  Ginny
