This gorgeous winter puff quilt pattern needs about 2 metres of fabric. Astar has used a quilt silk for the backing. The squares are puffed with wool batting. Batting for an extra layer of ‘quilt’! The technique is so easy, anyone can do this.
There are 64 squares each measuring 8 1/2inches. The backing of the squares measure 7 1/2 inch.
Puff quilts always look so luxurious. A vintage fabric was used for this quilt pattern. It’s given the quilt a mix of old english Victorian, but somehow has a modern shabby look too. Very snuggly. Anyone would wrap up in this puffy quilt. There’s no binding either. It’s just a straight sew, but it certainly doesn’t look like it.
It’s quite a heavy quilt. Puff quilts are usually great for baby quilts because of the ease of handling. Puffy quilts get more difficult to sew as you progress through the project. They’re bulky and it needs a little maneuvering to get into the seams. Astar has figured out how to get passed those challenges.
Take 1 of the 8 1/2 inch squares and 1 of the 7 1/2 inch squares. Put wrong sides together. Pin each corner, then make a small fold in the larger square and pin.
Do this for three sides. Leave one side open.
Then sew 8 blocks together. All of the blocks in line will have the opening on the same side.
Fill the little puff pockets with wool batting. Pin the edge of each square. Sew the stuffed bands closed. Sew together the bands. The trick is to do it in smaller sections.
While is there is no actual pattern tutorial here, the video shows how you can get a really special feel for a puff quilt using vintage fabric.
