  53. I tried backing my husband's quilt once with Minky a few years ago. I had such difficulty keeping it taut while I spray basted and pin basted. I switched to the usual cotton backing. If you have a tip on how to keep it taut I would appreciate it.

  54. I made a baby blanket with Minky recently and didn't have too many problems-only a little shifting.
