This is Wanda's quilt and I love how she decided to use a minky back. It is so soft and plush! When you use a minky fabric for the backing, the quilt is a little heavier. So to keep the wt. down just a little I used a light polyester batting. The quilting shows up super nice with use of the poly batting and the minky backing. The other thing you must be careful of is to not stretch the backing. You want it so there are no wrinkles, but if you pull it, your quilt will come out wonky.
Didn't Wanda do a great job with this quilt! She always makes super nice quilts and this one will surely make someone very happy to receive it!
