thank you!  i am super crafty and like sewing so quilting just seems  to come to me.

yeah, Maremare is right. that is how they are made.  i used 3 1/2 and 5" squares and just did a simple pleat in the center of the larger on to make them the same size, then pin.  i pinned the corners too. the pinning was the long part.  i don't usually pin stuff but it was necessary on this one.  i did the pinning while i watched tv so it wasn't too bad.  i did them in batches, pined 40, sewed them, stuffed them.  this one is made from 120 puffs, 10 rows of 12.  sewing all the squared together was a bit hard, because it is bulky and awkward.  it took alot of wrestling with my sewing machine to get them through.  then i just added a couple borders and a backing.
