Purple Circles

I got a customer quilt in that is a baby quilt.  The quilt is a modern quilt.  It has appliqued circles on a white back ground with squares as the borders.  I decided to echo the circles inside.  Then did circles in the corners and in the middle of the white.  On the block I did orange peels.  The back was a minky.  Minky can be difficult if not cut right or put on the longarm correctly.  You need to make sure that you give plenty of extra backing.  You cannot cut the backing to be the same size as the front.  It will always come up short when it is finished.  Minky stretches, but you don't want it to.
