Today I'll be working on the binding of a quilt I just got back from Kerry's Quilting.  Kindhearted Klues turned out very cute with a frogs in a green thread.  This is the first quilt I've backed with minke.  It sure is soft.  Morgan my youngest niece should love it.

Here's Kordova Klosure.  I'm making it bigger with the additional pieces you see.  I'm adding 12 finished inches all around.  I may have to find some additional reds; I should be set with the blacks.  Maybe I'll bind it in blue?  I've cut 10 1/2" squares of black and white fabrics for the back.  I've got somewhere close to what I need ready, but need to wait and measure just how many I'll actually need.

I'll be continuing through the week on Konnections to Kollinwood and Klunky Korners.  Hope you are able to get into your sewing room as much as you want to this week.  I've got a 4 day work week YIPPEE!  Enjoy the extra day light.

I haven't used minke yet, but my daughter has. Makes a very cuddly quilt.
I like your backing idea for Kordova Klosure. And the extra border is going to be very pretty--the reds glow!
