Yes You Can! Quilting with Cuddle® Minky Plush Fabric (Video Tutorial)

Yes You Can! Quilting with Cuddle® Minky Plush Fabric (Video Tutorial)

Catching the quilting bug is a very real thing, but pair that with catching the Cuddle® bug, and there’s no turning back!

But why quilt with Cuddle®?

It’s surprisingly durable and plenty soft for all-day comfort, and its heavier weight and higher pile has been embraced wholeheartedly by quilters and sewists for its cozy, ultra-soft feel with no break-in period. Simply put, it’s irresistible — right from the beginning!

And while any of our Cuddle® and Luxe Cuddle® fabrics work well for machine quilting, our extra-wide collections have been embraced by quilters who both quilt exclusively with minky and those who use minky as the backing for their cotton patchwork quilt. It’s also great for applique and for quilt binding!

This week Teresa stops by Sew It Up Bernina on her Sew Together Tuesday “On the Road” tour to discuss all things quilting and Cuddle®, including recommended notions, some of her favorite projects, longarm quilters in the US, and more.

Happy sewing (or rather, quilting)!
