Hi, I am Rose from Ludlow Quilt and Sew and I am thrilled to be adding a biscuit recipe to the Moda Bakeshop.
Pin two corners of the backing square to the corners of the charm pack square. As the charm pack square is larger than the backing square, there is a loop of charm pack fabric between the two pins.
Holding the two corners, smooth the fabric from each side towards the middle and then squash the loop of charm pack fabric flat to make a pleat. Pin in place and repeat with a further two sides so that three sides are pinned and one side is open.
This is what it looks like on the back.
I think the video will make this much more clear:
Continue sewing the charm pack squares to the backing squares on three sides until you have used all 42 squares.
When you have added the filling, flatten the fourth edge, make a pleat as on the other sides of the square and sew the seam.
Join the biscuits together by squeezing flat the edge to be joined and then sewing two biscuits together with right sides together.
To embellish the border I made a dozen daisies using gold embroidery thread and sewed them round the biscuit quilt border.
The finished size is 21.1/2" square. I intend to use my puff quilt as a quilted wall hanging for Christmas, but it makes such a lovely, unusual quilt that it could be made for a pram or crib covering, or to go on top of a Christmas hamper for a Christmas gift. It would also make a lovely and comfortable cushion cover.
Thanks for looking at my pattern. If you like what you see do join me on Ludlow Quilt and Sew.
