    Quilting question

    I have a quilt block that I finished. It is a 7 in. square block with an appliqued circle in the middle. When I put in the polyester batting and the cotton back piece together and then quilted around the circle with a regular stitch, the circle was flat and the back of the block was puffy. What could have caused this? I wanted the top to be a little puffy but it wasn't. THis is a picture of the back of the block. I wanted the front to look like this, not the back.

    Thanks

        It looks to me that you didn't have the layers tight enough. You have some puckering as well as the puffiness. I would tear the stitches then start over making sure that you keep the bottom layer really really taut when you are quilting the layers together.
