Puff Quilting

  1. Place the puff quilt's backing fabric right side down on a table. Place the quilt on top, right side up (the longest edge of a quilt this size will usually fit across the width of the fabric).
  2. Use safety pins or tacks to hold the layers together.
  3. Thread embroidery floss through a needlepoint needle and tie each corner of a pocket with a square knot. Move from the upper right to the lower left. (Photo)

  4. Remove tacks or pins and trim backing even with sides of the puff quilt. Baste or zigzag stitch around the edges of the quilt.
