The Biscuit Lady!

Well that's what my family calls me when I take to making these adorable #Biscuit #Pillow #Quilts.  The 2 shown, I made the last two months of 2014.  Now I am about to start another in beautiful pinks.  These are so soft and comfy for your newborn, and make the perfect #TummyTimeBlanket  I shall post photos of my newest when its complete!
 Selection of Fabrics took a very long time!
~in the end I changed my mind on a few colours
 cutting and placement was next on the agenda
 making 81 perfect little squares with backing was the next step
 what I 'thought' was the most tedious task 
was perfectly stuffing each puff
with the same amount.
I also added a 3" wide flannel border around the edge 
that matched the owl flannel print backing!
 But the most 'time consuming' step was 
sewing 81 little biscuits or pillows together
Near the end it gets very bulky!
 Little Teddy was so adorable on his "TeddyTime" quilt.
His new momma, said he loved laying on it.
Squares can be placed randomly or in a diagonal pattern!
I choose diagonal pattern placement for the pink one as well!
the very full 4" wide ruffle was the best finishing touch
soft chevron flannel was the perfect choice!
