After you cut it, place it into the drier for 10 minutes to get rid of the lint. this make it much easier to work with.

I was putting a minky back on a 100% cotton crib-sized blanket - no batting or quilting. I DID NOT cut the minky to size. I squared the cotton and pinned the minky to it -wrong sides together) LIBERALLY -pinned about every 2" - not just around the perimeter... I pinned in staggered rows the entire thing. THEN, when I was satisfied that it was adequate, I trimmed (squared) the minky to the size of the cotton side. NEXT, I sewed around all 4 sides, leaving about a 6-8" opening to turn. Before turning, I removed ALL pins & pressed the entire thing ON THE COTTON SIDE. After turning, I topstitched around all 4 sides, which also sealed the opening used to turn. Pressed again on the cotton side. It has held up well through washing & drying, even though there is no quilting or tying off, only the top stitching. Hope this helps.

After squaring the cotton did you pin it RIGHT SIDES together? Your third sentence says wrong sides together, but then you sew the four sides and invert (pillowcase turn) , so I'm pretty sure you have right sides together which then get turned out.
