I crossed "make the boys new quilts" off of my Summer bucket-list just in time for school to start.
EVERY night my boys kick their top sheets off or to the bottom of the bed…so I gave up on top sheets and backed these quilts with a super duper soft minky (the silver is out of stock now). It was definitely an investment (it was $8.48 a yard when I bought it!) but it will be worth it if I don’t have to dig for that darn top sheet every morning.
Because the back is minky I paid a long arm quilter to do the quilting. I’ve quilted with minky in the past but its not my favorite and requires a lot of basting spray/pins. Kathy did the quilting and did just enough to make it look great without making it too stiff… as minky backed quilts can be.
He loves it. Now I just need it to have magic powers and make my kids sleep in past 6 AM. *yawn*
