    Cute quilt Jennifer! To cut cost of project use a muslin for that back of the puffy block, use a scant 1/4” seam to reduce losing the finish size of block, and consider using a gathering foot instead of making a tuck.

    wow, I was searching to find out how to make a puffed cushion for my computer chair, I saw 2 tutorials which included ripping the backs of each square ( i dont want to hand sew, if i can avoid it I will ! but your method looks so much easier. I love love love this baby crib quilt but no-one is expecting right now!, if I remove the ruffle and replace it with binding and a backing fabric theres the cushion I was wanting to make thanks for making this look so achievable I willbe giving it a try in April and sending in a pic of the result xx

    easy way to make these!!!! make all your squares first and do not fill them. sew them together creating a row of how ever many you want with all the openings to top or bottom however you want to call it. now fill all the puffs in that row and stitch up that side all the way down. now make another row (DO NOT FILL YET) add this row to filled row on closed end to filled row. flip and now fill keep doing this till you get the size you want. this way you are only dealing with 1 thickness of fiber fill and not 2. goes faster as well. you can also chain stitch these single squares too then clip when done and life goes on with no wasting time lol. I am all about easy. i make many for dog beds in 5 sizes foe sale . i have no time to waste lol check them out https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100009047362640 now i just saved you some time and now you can have fun making puff quilts. have a gr8 day and good luck! 🙂

    Would we use the same technique to add a satin or cotton border as we do for the ruffle or could you add an additional tutorial for that?

    I love your video on how to make puff quilts but I cannot find the download of adding the ruffle and backing. Can you please tell me how to find it?

    Thank you for this tutorial. I’ve just bought a really old oak chair for my kitchen so I’m going to make a cushion with this as the front cover.

    Very pretty! Just wondering: After the backing and ruffle are added, is the center field ever quilted somehow to keep the front and back from separating?

    I realize this video is a year ok'd, but quick question. I'm wanting to make one of these for my dad and his gf. Can the bottom square be half an inch smaller than the top square or does it have to be a full inch in difference

    Call me a dummy but i still dont get how to put the ruffle on. Can u do another video showing exactly how? And you're not specific about which way the fabric is facing when making the blocks. Like if i take the 5 in piece on top with the right side facing out and the 4.5 in piece on the bottom with the right side facing out wouldnt that automatically make a back to the quilt? So then is there a need for a back? I need help and seeing it would really help. Nothing about the back is explained in this video but i love the quilt!

    I'm an experienced quilter but I've never made a bubble quilt. It is so so cute. But I don't understand how to finish off the back. The video is great as far as it goes. But please explain how to finish it. Thanks for the great video! 🙂

    This is a wonderful tutorial!!!!  I have owned two puff top king size bed spreads in the 30+ yrs that my husband and I have been married and I am in need of another one as they sure do help to keep one warm as well as being unusual and pretty too.  I have had no luck in finding one on line from a trustworthy company so it looks like I am going to need to TRY and make one, you make this look so easy!!!!  can you tell me for a California King what the measurements would be? Also.. I need to know how to add the three tier ruffle's for the bottom all the way around please??? thank you, Sheila

    Just a suggestion, if you sew the pockets that contain the filling into a strip side by side first and then stuff them it's much easier . Then sew all the tops shut in one row of stitching. Add the next empty row of pockets and repeat.

    is it possible to over stuff the puffs?? I made all the squares and am having a difficult time sewing them all together! I can't squish them enough to fit in my sewing machine. I guess I have to go back and unstuff them again…..haha!

    Great tutorial, thank you. I've always wondered how they were made. I went to download the ruffle instructions, but they don't seem to be on your website anymore. Is there any chance they could be popped up again, please. Thank you 🙂

    Thank you again Jen for this awesome video! Since I made my 1st bubble quilt, I have shared your video on Facebook many times even as far away as Australia! I bought a 5 LB box of the Poly-Fill to begin with. The quilt I made will fit a twin size bed. I also have made 3-12X16 bubble pillows. I still have enough of the poly-fil to make another twin size quilt.

    How do you add the backing to this quilt? Do you sew "in the ditch" like other quilts? Or is the backing of the puff the backing you see?
