Making a biscuit quilt begins with establishing a layout for the quilt, lining up the corners, stuffing the squares with fiberfill and sewing all the squares together. Ensure that all the necessary materials are available before starting the project, including a pair of scissors, fabric squares, needle, fiberfill, thread and backing.
To make a biscuit quilt, run through the following steps:
- Establish a layout
- Line up the corners
- Stuff the squares
Determine the layout or color plan intended for use for the biscuit quilt on graph paper. The layout helps determine the exact number of biscuits of each color required in each row. Size up the squares and cut one in five inches and the other in four inches. Use the five-inch square for the top and the four-inch square for the back.
Bring the sides together using a basting stitch. Observe an even spacing of the stitches around the five-inch square. Baste all the squares at the their edges together as all stitches are gathered against the four-inch square. Remember to remove the basting stitches later when stitching a permanent stitch into the square. Turn the squares inside out and pull out each of the corners using a needle until all the squares are stitched and turned inside out.
Stuff the biscuit squares with enough fiberfill. The fiberfill stuffed in the squares should be of the required amount to enhance easier opening and closing of the square. After fluffing, use an invisible slip stitch, a braid or a ribbon to sew all the squares. Line up the quilt back-to-back, pull the quilt through the open end and pull out the corners well.
