Crafting Extravaganza Day One: The Puff Quilt!

Jun 24, 2011 by

Call it nesting (or perhaps just CRAZY) but I have been on a sewing/knitting/crocheting spree lately and I think it’s time to stop TALKING about everything I’ve made and start SHOWING some pictures of all the cool stuff!

First and foremost, the puff quilt!  I tried to take pictures step-by-step so you could all see some of the “behind-the-scenes” work that goes into making a puff quilt.  I think you will understand, once you see the step-by-step photos, why people charge so much to custom-make them!

All the fabric squares, soon to be sewn into puffs!


First puff, ready to be stuffed!



Certain individuals got pretty bored watching me sew and decided to find excitement elsewhere 🙂



First finished puff!



Lots of puffs!



My first two rows of the quilt center (aka the fun part!)






And…drumroll please………………………









Homer’s first puff quilt! Isn’t it adorable?! 🙂


Many thanks, once again, to Heidi at Honeybear Lane for the puff quilt tutorial!  I’d love to make another one soon!  Looks like this post is getting long, so the rest of my crafts will have to be another post for another day.  Hope you all enjoyed this one!  Let me know if there’s something you’d like to see more or less of in coming blogs! 🙂

  1. Holy cow! That looks great! I think I want one for myself! Good work!

    • Thanks! I’d make you one but I think I’ll be a little preoccupied in the near future. 😉 Maybe after that.

  2. Aw, that is such a sweet quilt. I can’t believe you made it yourself. I wish I could do that. Good job!

  3. That looks really awesome Lauren! I hadn’t heard of a puff quilt before, but that looks super soft. Another idea if you want another crafty project is the one I am working on right now — turning all your old t-shirts into a quilt. I’ll show you pictures … once I take them.

    • Thank you! It is very soft. 🙂 I do love the tshirt quilts. Adam’s mom made him one with all his fraternity shirts and it’s pretty cool. And even better, you dont’ have to feel guilty when you can’t fit into your freshman size shirts anymore. 😉

  4. WOW….you made that? I don’t have the patience for that!!! AMAZING work! Simply amazing!!!!

    • Thanks! 🙂 It was a lot of fun, actually. Sewing all the puffs together was the easy part. I watched a lot of Dr. Phil and Oprah while I was doing it. The edges were kinda hard because I didn’t understand the instructions but I think if I did another one, it would be much better. 🙂 Let me know if anyone you know needs/wants one!

  5. Lauren that looks amazing…especially for your first one..looks perfect!

  6. Thank you very much! 🙂

  7. Hey! I LOVE LOVE love this quilt and want to make one for my baby. I was wondering how much fabric you need of each type to finish this type of quilt. And also I was wondering how big your squares were. I clicked on the link to learn how to make them but it didn’t work, so I was wondering if you could just let me know how much fabric I need and then the measurements of everything. Thanks so much!! I’m using these same colors as well because I love them so much 😉

  8. Beautiful!
