My baby quilts are soft, cuddly, and can make a wonderful touch and feel blanket, as well.
What gives the quilts that added special touch? The fabric is called minky, which is luxurious and silky soft. This fabric, which is perfect for baby quilts, resembles the real mink in touch and has a soft short pile that is as soft as cashmere. Now if you are a quilter and are interested in using minky or minx as it is sometimes referred to, here are some of my tips from using the material in my baby quilts that may come in handy.
I have purchased minky in lines and dots, stripes and novelty prints, plus every color of the rainbow, which makes it easy to use in your baby quilts. On the internet or at your favorite quilt shop, it is available by the yard or by the bolt for the quilts that you want to add just a few patches or ones that you would an entire quilt made.
