    I recently finished this infant puff quilt for my niece's baby. I wanted to try half squares too. The back of this quilt is light weight flannel.

    This is the front of the baby modified puff quilt I also crocheted the little brown bear that you see in this photo.
    I did this all by hand

    Such cute quilts. I love the way puff quilts look. So soft and cuddly.

    Please share with us! I did a queen size "puff" or biscuit quilt several years ago--it's so big I have to wash it in the bathtub, won't even fit in the triple loader at the laundermat.

    I took 2 different size squares (smaller on bottom, larger on top) and pin "tucks" in the larger one so it is the same size as the smaller one, sew 3 sides of the square, stuff with loose batting, pick tuck on 4 side and sew closed. it was a real pain.

    I hope you have discovered an easier way!

    Very pretty. The only quilt I have left that my grandmother made for me is a king puff. I love it but you are right it is heavy. Yours looks great.

    Very sweet. I made a baby biscuit quilt many years ago by marking the squares on a muslin back, sewing the larger squares with tucks to the backing, then sewing the seam allowances together. (I sewed 3 meeting sides together before I filled the puffs. Then I sewed the last sides together and did the last seam allowance.) Then I sewed that all to a pretty backing and sewed the sandwich together between the puffs. It was difficult and I have done more that way since.
    I have read about other methods, but I don't think there is an EASY method. :lol: :?

    How sweet! I haven't seen bisquits blocks and ruffles on the quilt edge in a very long time ... I love it. The little crocheted bear is adorable too. Nice work on them both auntie!
