    Default Making blocks with gathered/ruched pieces.

    I'd like to make a quilt that has pieces that have been gathered, so that it has a pillowy effect. Has anyone else ever done this?

    Do you mean biscuit/puff quilting?

    No, I'm not really referring to a biscuit quilt...they're just a little puffy. I'm thinking more of ruched pieces. I'd like to gather them up until they actually have folds in them.

    Time for you to design a new quilt. Only you can see what is in your minds eye so just give it a try. Be sure to take a picture and show the rest of us what you come up with. If you like what you come up, enjoy the praise from board members, if you are not crazy about what turns out a member just might have advice to make it happen. Have fun and go for it. A quilt titled Urban Cowgirl has gathered flowers all over it. The pattern is free and came from one of the fabric company's web sites, just can't remember which one.

    I like the one on Pinterest. I have no idea how big you would cut the block. Don't care for the ruffled one.

    I like the ruffled quilt. You did a nice job on that! I could see that idea using some gossamer silk fabric. It would be like a floating cloud.

    Perhaps you gather first, then cut.
