Working with Minki fabric?

Hi all. Glad to see some are still quilting even though the weather is nice in most of the northern hemisphere. (Canada excluded) Snow! yuck.
Here is my minki question.
While I was in Ocala last week I found a 2007 mag. with a pepermint twist quilt pattern for red/white for a Christmas quilt. I went wild and bought lots of red and whites. Could I use white Minki for backing to make it super soft? This would be in place of batting and backing. It sounds like it would work, but I don't know. Since it is 60" wide I wouldn't have to piece the back. Would it slip and slide all over the place ?
Thanks for your input. I may or may not take it, but JoAnn's has a 40% off sale this weekend, so would be a good time to buy.
Sara in Fla. where the sun is shining again and there is no drought going on now.

Hello All!

Hello everyone.I try to stop by and read over the blog at least twice a week, but I don't always have the time. I still enjoy keeping up with what everyone is doing, although I have become somewhat of a stranger over the last few years.

However, I did want to stop and let those that still remember me from the earlier days (before the site moved to this new format)what is going on with me.

Before Christmas I finished a quilt for my husband. Since then I've worked at finishing a Grandmother's Flower Garden quilt that I started back in 1999. I would work on it between other quilting projects. I just got so bored with it. It was hard to work on at times. But, being someone that hates to start something and not finish it, I continued to do a little here and there. Besides, the pattern it is one that I've always admired and just "had to make" when I first started it.

It is all hand sewn except for where I sewed the binidng on. I don't have a picture to post just yet, but I hope to get one uploaded soon. I just wanted to share my news with old friends and hopefully some new ones.
