How to make a puff or biscuit quilt video tutorial – part 2

This is part 2 of my tutorial how to make a puff or biscuit quilt.  In today’s tutorial I’ll finish my cat’s puff bed now.

Just a small note: My quilt is small so I didn’t tie it. I’ve washed it and when I do it comes out fine.

For a larger quilt, it may be best to tie it every set of 4 puffs in a square if that makes sense.  This explains how to tie a quilt.

I think my cat Spécial likes it. Do you agree?

Did you miss part 1? Do you need to watch the tutorial again? Here it is:


My book Turnabout Patchwork

“Turnabout Patchwork. Simple quilts with a twist” is all about playing with blocks – making a block, slicing it up, and turning or repositioning the pieces to make a completely different block (sometimes two smaller blocks) to yield endless quilt tops.

How to make a puff or biscuit quilt video tutorial – part 1

Puff quilts or biscuit quilts are very special quilts and they’re very easy to make as I’ll demonstrate.

For this project I made a puff quilt as a cat’s bed and my cat loves it. I think he particularly loves it in summer because cotton is a lot cooler than his polyester store bought bed.

The tutorial is in 2 parts. Check it out!

Sawtooth star is one of the blocks in My lucky stars quilt.
The pattern can be easily adapted to use crumb quilting by replacing just some parts of each block. See some designs below.
