I am planning a quilt for a pregnant co-worker, and always fancied having a go at a puff quilt. I thought I'd try a pillow first, just to try out the technique.


It turned out okay (okay enough that I plan on going ahead with the actual quilt), but I learned to sew all the squares together before I stuff. Sewing stuffed squares together was a bit of a challenge.

Very cute! I bet it's lovely to use! Can't wait to see the quilt! How long did it take you to make the pillow?

Very pretty.
How do you stuff the squares after you have sewn them together?

I'm planning on taking the top fabric squares and sewing it to squares of spare, junk fabric I have (I'm using bedsheets). Then I sew them together. Then I cut a little slit in the back of the bedsheet fabric on each square & stuff it through there. I  think trapunto is done in a similar way. Then I sew it up. As it's a quilt I'll be sewing that quilt top to a backing fabric anyway so it won't matter that the back of each individual square had a little sewn up slit in it. This pillow took me about a weekend. It went far faster than I anticipated.

Ah yes Trapunto. Very clever and of course it won't show once the backing fabric is on.
