    I made for the first time a puff (biscuit) quilt and now I am in love!

    After I made the little pillows I pieced them in blocks then I pieced the blocks.
    I wanted it to be larger so I added even borders.
    It has batting and backing and it is so warm and comfy! It measure only 52x52 but weights a lot !

    Did some of you make such a quilt ?

    Here is a pattern that is lots easier than all the individual squares. It is made with blocks of fabric sewn together.

    Oh my goodness that is lovely....and did you bring back memories for me!! My grandmom made me a quilt like that but back then she cut all the fabric with pinking shears and sewed them one three sides.....stuffed them with panty hose that she had cut the feet and top off and bleached.Then she sewed them all together!! She would put the word out for panty hose and with 9 married children she would get a lot!!

    Geta, I made one years ago, but made the blocks too big. Didn't work from a pattern, and it shows.

    Yours is beautiful and it looks heavy!

    My puff quilt is almost 40 years old! I love that quilt. My sister made it when she was first married. She put rick/rack between the rows. She also made a matching dust ruffle. Its in my blanket chest - and that's where its going to stay! LOL My sister will have to trade me something reallllllyyyyyy gooood to get that quilt back.

    Hi Geta, I've had one of those things in my UFO pile for about 20 years. It has moved from place to place. I'd work on it awhile and then my DD took it. She did a little more. Now it is back with me and I have good intentions of finishing it this year. I hope. I'm not fond of making this type of quilt.

    Yours is pretty. Good work.

    This compliment is coming from my 7-year old daughter. She has become a fan of looking at the photos on this web-site and she wanted to personally comment on your quilt!

    There was one of these at our county fair No one could figure out what was in it was so heavy they couldn't hang for display It won peoples choice A husband made it and stuffed each Puff with a pair of panty hose his Wife was saving,, but she didn't know for what.. over the years she had bags of them with a rip or run or toe out but never throwed out said could where under slacks but only wore dresses. Hubby had the brain storm and made quilt to use them up and he did-- was king size !! and warm :):)
