    Puff quilt question

    I recently saw a tutorial for a puff quilt and it looked so easy,I really want to make one but I am wondering what happens to the puffs when you wash the quilt. Has anyone made one and laundered it. Do the puffs hold up

    Biscuit Quilt

    Yes, challenging to sew them together. I have made about 15 or so, biscuits queen,double and crib size.

    They wash up beautiful and dry the same, if you use polyester fiberfill.

    I am not real sure puff and biscuit quilts are the same.

    Above is the last one I made for our youngest Great Granddaughter. Sorry, I didn't write down the date I made it. I'm thinking 2017. She is only going on 3.

    Thank you feffertim. Make sure you don't use too much fiberfill or it will even more challenging to sew together. I used about the size of ping pong or golf ball. I made the pattern on graph paper. Push stuffing to one side and pin with safety pin. Bottom square is 3" top square is 4" put a tuck in the center leave one side unsewn until stuffed, then make the tuck in center and sew it closed. I hope this helps.
