Default help with buscuit puff quilt.

Making an infant size. I've looked at some videos and images. I understand the puffs. So there is no batting? What is the best way to attach it to the back?

When you say you understand the puffs, does that mean you know they can be filled with a fiberfill product as this website shows? http://quilting.about.com/od/quiltpa...uff-Quilts.htm One of the steps says to tie with embroidery floss at the block corners.

This website http://www.womenfolk.com/baby_quilts/biscuitpattern.htm says to sew a button through all the layers in each flower block.

This website eliminated the center layer of fabric and stuffed each block as she was sewing them together. http://cookcleancraft.com/2013/03/qu...tmat-tutorial/

Seems that the bottom line is however you want to do it as long as you secure the front biscuit puffs to the back in some manner to stabilize it. Hope we get to see a picture one of these days.

I used a very thin ply. cotton batting.Tied with pearl cotton.batting is needed if you have borders or you have to quilt each border before attaching to main quilt......

I machine sewed all my puffs together, with the seams looking very messy, and then I stitched the resulting top to a backing using the birthing method, making sure I caught all the seams when I sewed around the edges. I actually made a pillow, so I had an opening on the back; otherwise I would have left a hole for turning and then stitched it closed afterwards.

When you make the puff, part of the puff is the backing. You need pins to keep the the tucks in place and then you stuff it lightly with poly stuffing. At least that the way it was done back in the stone age.

Did you polyfil the puffs and also put a batting on? I guess I want to know if that would over do it. I making this for a late December baby that lives in freezing New Jersey and would like it to be warm. I didn't plan on doing borders.

Here's one I did a few weeks ago http://www.quiltingboard.com/picture...t-t268204.html
Used the method shown at www. awaitingada.com . Not easy for sure, but working on it helped to relieve some really severe anxiety, kept me from tearing my face off!

I have made about 10 biscuit quilts.
The bottom square is cut at 3-1/2", top at 4-1/2". Sew 3 sides together, put a tuck on each side to make same size as bottom. stuff loosely with polyfil. If you stuff too full it will be hard to sew them together. After they are all sewn together, cut back and use the pillow case method. Bind and tie at each intersection. I have a pamphlet type book with instructions.

Gee....back before I knew there were rules for quilting, I made a biscuit quilt. I cut, sewed, stuffed with poly and sewed the seam shut. Then I blind stitched the blocks together. Never put a backing on it!!!!!!! Now I'm wondering just how that looked!!!!!! ROL ROL....my grandson is 19 now....wonder if they still have it!!!!!
