DIRECTIONS:

To find the downloadable patterns click on the "GET PATTERNS" tab above.
  1. Read all instructions before cutting and sewing. Sew with 1/4" seam unless indicated. WOF = width of fabric. Press all fabric before cutting.
  2. From each of the five 5/8yd pieces cut four strips 5"x WOF. Subcut into 5" squares so you have 32 squares of each fabric for a total of 160 squares. Label these fabrics as A, B, C, D, and E.
  3. From the 1/2yd piece cut three strips 5"x WOF. Subcut into 5" squares so you have 20 squares total. Label this fabric as F.
  4. From the muslin cut twenty strips 4 1/2"x WOF. Subcut into 4 1/2" squares so you have 180 squares for the bottom of the puff blocks.
  5. As shown in the template, lay a 5" square right side up on a 4 1/2" square matching the top right corners. Using a scant 1/4" seam start to sew along the right edge. When you are about a quarter of the way down stop and match the bottom right corners. Pinch up the excess fabric into a pleat close to the middle. Hold the pleat down as you sew over it. Sew to the end and feed in the next set of squares repeating the process until you chain stitch all 180 pairs. Cut them apart and stitch the next side the same way. Repeat with the third side. Leave the last side open to form a pocket.
  6. In a large work area assemble the blocks following the template or arrange in a way to your liking. You will have 15 rows with 12 blocks in each row. Stack each row in order, with the open side to the bottom, and label 1 through 15.
  7. Starting with Row 1, sew blocks together making sure the opening is to the bottom. Finger press seams (odd numbered rows to the left and even numbered rows to the right) so they will nest when rows are sewn together. Sew all 15 rows at this time.
  8. Lightly stuff each block in Row 1 with fiberfill, about palm size. (Be sure not to over stuff or you may find it hard to sew the rows together later.) As you stuff the blocks form a pleat and pin. Sew down the entire row with a scant 1/4" seam pushing the fiberfill to the side as you stitch. Repeat with each row.
  9. Pin or clip Rows 1 and 2 together nesting seams. Stitch with a regular 1/4" seam. Pin Row 3 to 2 and stitch. Continue until all rows are sewn together. You may find that it is easier to sew into groups and then combine your groups rather than row by row.
  10. Measure length and width of the quilt and prepare backing to match. Center the quilt wrong sides together to the backing. Pin the edges at corners to be sure quilt top is square to backing. When squared baste around edges. To keep the puffs straight with the backing pull at the pleated part of the blocks and pin at intersections. Carefully stitch in the ditch removing pins as you sew.
  11. Cut 6 strips from binding fabric 2 1/2"x WOF. Stitch strips together and press in half. Sew to quilt front, fold over to back and hand stitch in place.
  12. Quilt should finish at approximately 48"x 60".

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 5x5 I use 5x5 charms or layer cakes, so much easier to do rather then all the cutting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lap size puff quilt pattern and instructions Such a cute quilt! Both of my daughters (26 and 20 - both beginning to intermediate sewers) made one too. We worked on them together. They got a little frustrated with the tedious repetition but they worked through it. We changed the size and made them for queen size beds. I couldn't be happier with how they turned out! The photo is my 20 year olds quilt- not showing the edges because we haven't finished the binding step yet ;) Most of the negative reviews have to do with printing the pattern. I did not print it but rather referred to the online instruction when needed and had no issues at all.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Printing of Projects Always Need a Workaround Love the pattern and appreciate that it's free. However, 2/2 patterns that I have printed do NOT print all of the instructions. It appears that a conversation with the web developer needs to happen. My workaround is to copy and paste the Supplies & Tools and the Directions into a Word document, then print that along with the picture so that I can see a finished product. As another reviewer posted, you can fill in my hand the missing steps. Again, it's a free pattern, so I am not complaining, just making you aware of this. Thus, the average rating.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quilt pattern I started this project years ago, and couldn’t remember how to finish it, so it just sat in my closet. This pattern, along with the downloadable pictures helped me finish it. I’m so happy with these pattern instructions. Now I have a beautiful quilt for a Christmas present and it was fun!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the idea, first quilt - questions though What does it mean to say: Sew to the end and feed in the next set of squares repeating the process until you chain stitch all 180 pairs. Cut them apart and stitch the next side the same way. …,.. Finger press seams (odd numbered rows to the left and even numbered rows to the right) so they will nest when rows are sewn together. …definitions for: Chain stitch, Scant and Nest?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Cute! AND easy-to-understand instructions :) When I first saw this quilt on the flyer, I was hoping that the pattern would soon follow: and it did! I read through the directions, then printed them: there is no mystery about how to sew the quilt: the instructions are clear and concise, and no information is missing. I would suggest that "Print Project" be employed to print the picture And the complete instructions for this oh-so-cute lap quilt.
