I'm participating for the first time in Amy's quilt festival Fall 2009. I had a hard time picking a quilt but I have decided on this quilt that I made for my first granddaughter. I wish you could touch the Minky and feel how soft it is. The animal faces are machine embroidered on Minky fabric and the backing is also Minky. A very snuggley quilt. Don't forget to visit Amy's site for all the other participates in the Quilt Festival Fall 2009.
