Puff Quilt Pattern
Is there any better way to spend a cold day than sitting in front of a fireplace, sipping cocoa under a cozy quilt?
Known as a Biscuit, Bubble, Pillow or Puff quilt, this type of quilt has been around a long time. Many of us will remember making or being given one in the 1970’s when it was very popular.
Cold Weather Comfort
A 1930’s article for a Cold Weather Comfort stuffed quilt pattern has a little different take on the Puff Quilt. I share the full article and a PDF file below.

Stuffed Fabric Triangles
It uses squares built by cushioned triangles. The fabric is the same on both sides so the comforter is reversible and needs no lining or quilting. You can make it any size depending on the amount of puffs you make.
You make the puffs by folding 5 inch fabric squares into a triangle, sew one side, then turning it right side out and stuffing them lightly. After several are stuffed, baste them together.
The squares are formed by joining the seams of four triangles. Once all the squares are joined together, it’s finished. Next a sateen border can be sewn to the comforter with a whip stitch. In the end it looks very pretty and uses lots of leftover fabric scraps in the process.

A good place to start is with this Spruce.com tutorial, Learn How to Make a Puff Quilt. It explains how to make the type of Puff Quilt most people are familiar with.
The next link is from the Buzzing and Bumbling Blogger post, Puff or Biscuit Quilt Tutorial. She wrote the tutorial for her daughter-in-law to make gifts for her friends. There are loads of photos and instructions.

I found several puff quilt pattern tutorial videos, but chose this one to feature here.
