Quilting with Minky or Cuddle Backing


Recommended Posts

Hi there fellow APQS Quilters - I am getting ready to quilt a baby quilt with "cuddle or minky" backing. The quilt is 54x70 and the cuddle fabric is heavy without batting. 
1) Did you use batting? If so, what blend?
2) How did you prevent backing from stretching?
3) Did you need to tighten or loosen the tension?
I appreciate any insight you can provide. Thank you

It has been awhile but I didn't have any problems. I did use a batting. I think a low loft poly batting.  Make sure you don't stretch the Minky when loading. Load  with the lengthwise grain against the  leaders.  I adjusted tension as usual. Good luck


Hi Betty. Do you mean have the lengthwise grain  without stretch, running parallel to the leaders?  

Thank you,
