Flashback to the 70s - Minkee quilt
Monday, October 03, 2011
Back in June one of my Spark teams had a get together in Shipshewana, Indiana. That little town is in the heart of Amish country and the food, handcrafts ... OMG! They also have a fantastic fabric store called Lolly's. I bought a quilt kit made of Minky/Minkee (I see it spelled both ways) at one of the little shops in Lolly's. The fabric is very soft, luxurious and warm. I've been told it was named after the animal but I don't know that for a fact.
I call the quilt "Flashback to the 70s" ... a strip quilt made of lime green, paisley, polka-dots - what else could it be?
I finished it a few days ago; here are a couple pics
Tah dah ... Flashback to the 70s:
