Here is the quilt I finished a few days ago. I made for the first time a puff (biscuit) quilt and now I am in love! I see many quilts like this in the future.
I planned to make it for my little nephew, Alex, but in the last moment I changed my mind.
Just before to wash it, I noticed that some fibers migrate through the top fabric (bearding). It is almost invisible but probably it is not a good idea for a 4 month baby.
Maybe it is because of the quality of the poly fiber I used for stuffing the little pillows. Or maybe it is normal as the stuffing is loose and not like a bonded batting.
Did some of you make such a project ? Did you notice bearding ?
My godson is 5 years old and I am very happy to offer it to him. When Alex will be a big boy, I will make another quilt like this for him.
All the family worked on this project: my sister Nina helped me with pinning (the pieces can be stitched very easily without pinning though), my sister Nicoleta (Alex’s mother) stuffed the little pillows and my sister Oana helped me to stitch the binding on the back by hand.
I stitched first all the pillows on three edges then I stuffed them all then I finished them stitching the fourth edge.
I used 256 little pillows and the final size is 52”x52”.
Yes, I added even batting, a layer of fluffy and lightweight polyester batting.
I received a few comments and I read on Internet that this type of quilt weights a lot.
I thought that because my quilt is not too large it will not weight too much. After I added the batting and the backing it weights much more than a regular quilt. But I am happy with how it turned out.
Come back for new projects! Soon…14th of February is soon enough ??
