    Okay Guys,

    Information needed yet again.

    I saw a wonderful red puff/biscuit quilt on the board recently and it inspired me to try and make one.

    I have looked up how to make the puffs (I don't want them too padded) and I seem to understand that but how do I sew them together without having loads of seams down the back?????

    Or should there be seams down the back... and if there is...... how do I cover them???

    All information gratefully received!

    Hugs

    the one i made you added another back at the very last step and then just tacked it here and there thru all thicknesses and i'll tell you even with a little stuffing like i used that rascal gets heavy to handle so plan to have a large table to your left and behing the machine. but they are sooo pretty.
    i was newly divorced and made mine just for ME

    the puff quilt I made was two squares sewed together, turned, opening left to stuff ,closed, and then the side seams were closely zig-zagged together. So, it is puzzling to me why you think there would be seams in the back. You must be doing it a different way.

    I put batting then a sheet on the bottom and had no problem with the seams showing.

    The traditional method is to sew the puffs together, then cover all the seams on the back with a backing fabric. Tack the backing fabric to the puffs at regular intersections.
