    Default Bubble/puff/biscuit quilt

    Can someone tell me how they quilt a bubble/puff/biscuit quilt after it is stuffed? This will be for a 1 year old.

    Thanks so much.

    Crystal, here is a list of the M* tutorials that Karen made for us. Look for the "Cuddly Pillow Quilt" tutorial. That should help you out.

    You don't. The puff is what the quilt is all about...quilting down the pillow's would defeat the purpose of having it done like that.

    Thanks Carrie J. I had watched that one. But after I had found a pattern. I am not making it a rag quilt. I have the top together like a regular quilt. The directions say to cut the backing the same size as the top. Then sew with right sides together then turn to the right side. Now my issue is keeping the cuddle fabric and the top from separating. I was not meaning to quilt on top of the puffs. lol. Just something to hold the 2 fabrics together.

    Thanks all.

    Puff quilts are made in individual squares, not as an entire top and then adding a backing.

    Well I don't know what I am making. The directions I found did. I will just put a few ties in it I guess. Thank again all.

    I just read the first link you posted (Learn how to make a Puff quilt)Karen. And it is what I did. Made all the pocket, stuffed them and sewed them together as a top. Cut out the backing. And in those directions it does say to tie them so that is what I will do.

    Crystal,

    Yes, there are two different ways to make a puff quilt. The one you did - where you make the top first with the puffs and add the back. The 2nd version is you do it all at once. For the version you did, I think tying is going to be the easiest thing as it would be really difficult to quilt between the puffs once the back is put on. It would also be really difficult to get the back really smooth like you want it when you machine sew. Be sure to show us a picture when you get it done. I think those quilts are just so cute.

    I tied mine using Aunt Lydia's crochet yarn. My puffs finished off at 4" so I tied every 2 puffs. The puffs hide the thread tails.

    I remember reading a pattern a long time ago where you sew two squares of fabric, right sides together, leaving a small opening for turning, turn, then stuff, then stitch closed. Once you get all the squares sewn and stuffed, you hand stitch the squares together. I don't like to hand sew so I have not made the pattern. My hand sewing is not so good so don't see how it would hold together in the long run.
