  1. Update! My surgeries went well today and I'm home resting and being a good patient, which is hard for me ;( I will be back in the showroom ASAP if not quilting doing something. In the meantime Barbara will be in covering for me as much as she can. It might be a good idea to call my cell phone before coming in just for a week or so. Thank you all so much for your understand and patience. Myrna

I have done several of her quilts with Minky on the back and they all turned out great. I will causion that the minky can "shadow" through if you will.
