    What a great idea to use the Route 66 this way. Was it difficult to make the biscuits?

    Fabulous quilt! Sounds like hubby just wants you to make quilts for him for awhile. Given how beautiful this one is, you can't blame him!!

    Your biscuit quilt is lovely. I hope the one I am currently working on turns out as nice.

    And are these really heavy? Or light and fluffy? It looks fluffy and soft.

    Just saw where you said it was heavy. Hmmm are the puffs packed tight?

    I tried not pack to tight just full enough so that the puff stands up. I never would have thought that it could be so heavy. I used large bags of stuffing for the whole quilt and I have about 15 puff left over.

    this is the easiest quilt I have made. I cut 4" square for the bottom and a 5 1/2 for the top, sew them together with right sides together and pleat on each side so the top block fit the bottom, left a small opening to turn and then turned stuffed and handed sewed close. after I had a bunch done, I started hand sewing each block together.

    Did you stop in Williams, Az to buy the fabric? Isn't that the cutest quilt shop ever? Hope you have enough "Route 66" fabric to make another quilt. Love you quilt you made.

    Yes the shop I stopped in was in williams Az, I love the shop, it so cute. I still have about 6 yards of route 66 fabric left of a different print. Guess I will have to find some more route 66 fabric so I can make him another one.
