You may have seen the beautiful Puff Quilts all over the internet and felt a bit intimidated. But I assure you, if you can sew a straight line, you can sew this version of a Puff Quilt!
* If you're making a baby sized quilt, you'll need 100 5x5 squares and 100 4x4 squares.
(10 rows and 10 columns)
* I bought 1 yard of 5 different fabrics. I was able to get 42 5x5 squares from each fabric resulting in 210 squares total.
(15 rows and 14 columns)
* If you want a larger sized quilt, you'll need 400 5x5 squares and 400 4x4 squares.
(20 rows and 20 columns)
Step 1: Match one corner of the 5x5 and 4x4 square together.
Step 2: Fold the 5x5 square in the middle to fit the 4x4 square
Sew on three sides of the square, stuff with PolyFil and then sew the fourth side.
Step 3: Sew 3 of the sides with a fold in the middle of each.
Step 4: While the puff is still on your machine, stuff and sew the 4th side.
Ta da! Now you have your first puff!
Now that we've seen all our puffs, the next step will go a lot faster! Time to make our rows!
Now it's time to sew all our rows together to finish the quilt top. For this step, PINNING IS YOUR FRIEND! Grab your rows, a box of pins and put on a good movie because this part will take a bit of patience.
Ta da! Now keep going until all your rows are sewn together.

If you choose, you can add a border like this:
or skip that step and your quilt will look like this:
Turn the quilt right side out and slip stitch closed.
Look how comfy and cozy it looks! This quilt is totally worth the time it takes to make!
TA DA! Super cozy!
