On Saturday our daughter Kelli and I finished up the “Puff”  quilt.

PuffQuilt-3
It’s bound and complete and ready for Saturday’s baby shower.  The Mom-to-be requested this quilt.  I had never made a Puff (biscuit) quilt before so this was a new adventure.

The quilt is actually easy to make.  Start with two squares…the good fabric that will show, cut at 5″ x 5″.  Then get a crappy piece of fabric and cut that 4″ x 4″.

Puff-1
Put the good piece on top of the bad.  Sew around three sides putting a tuck or pleat  in on each side.

Puff-2
Put a handful of stuffing in the puff.

Puff-7
Pin the open side shut making a tuck in the center.

Puff-4

Layer two puffs together and pin.  Sew.

Puff-6
Keep doing that until you get to the desired size.  Mine is in a 12 x 12 setting which makes the quilt 42″ x 42″.

To finish the quilt cut a backing, layer it right sides together on top of the quilt top.  Sew around the edge leaving an opening to turn the quilt right side out.  Trim the corner and turn it right side out.  Stitch the opening shut.  Tie the quilt.

This quilt is really more of a decoration than actually usable.  It was fun to make..I like trying something new!!
