    If you have pins on the top and the bottom of your baby “how are you going to protect yourself from sewing through the pins that are underneath

      Hi Debby,
      Here is what our expert had to say:
      You should not need to put pins on the bottom of the project- rather you can pin through all layers from the top.

      This is actually up to you. When sewing with minky or multiple layers of other thick fabrics, many people like to use safety pins while sewing because it reduces the chance for poking yourself with the pins, and also the chance of any pins being left behind.
      Hope this helps!

    I would like information/tips on making quilt blocks with minky, where minky is sewn to minky. I use minky on both sides of the quilt and usually swear I will ever do it again!

      Hi Christine.
      When sewing minky to minky it is very helpful to use a walking foot. This will help guide the layers of fabric through the machine evenly and avoid puckers. I would also recommend using pins, as minky can be a little slippery. This will help ensure everything stays lined up. Another tip with sewing a quilt with minky is to use a 1/2″ seam allowance rather than a 1/4″, and then press the seam open rather than to one side. This will help eliminate some bulk.
      Hope these tips help!
