    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!

    By modified puffs I have taken the top fabric and then purchased some cheap solid color fabric and cut them both the same size. I run the square off on my sewing machine, after having cut a slit in the solid back fabric that allows for fiber filling. I use Poly-fil, which is very light and airy.
    I sew the top fabric and the bottom inside out and when sewn all the way around, I turn them back through the slit that I had made. I then join the blocks in a row and then join the rows. I do the joining by hand and use an overcast stitch.
    When the whole quilt is done I turn it over and stuff all the little squares and I use iron on tape. I cut the tape the size of the opening in each square and then just iron them and peel the tape off the back and presto the slits are now covered.
    I then do my backing and leave a little excess to work with and then hand sew on the binding.

    The quilt is cute, and colorful ..
    I read your instructions, and by golly! You did a lot of work, but because you were basically working "production" style, you were probably seeing a quicker completion than working on each block, etc.
    I made crocheted bears like the one you made ... a long time ago ... my forty + year old daughter is still hauling it around! They are just the right size for little hands to hold and cuddle.
    Good job!
