By following the seams to quilt - you can create this really nice wavy box pattern that is easy to follow. Minky and batting is thicker and doesn't glide through the sewing machine throat. You have to pull the left side of your quilt as you sew - and if you drift a little when you get to the middle sections - the wavy line is very forgiving. I always use Aurifil 50wt. on the top and bottom with a #14 needle and stitch length at 3.5
I try to match the thread color to harmonize and 'sink' into the quilt since I don't do free motion or complicated designs. I love the Aurifil 50wt. Muslin as a great color to meld into vintage like and pastel fabric collections.
