Saturday Snapshots: Bubble / Biscuit Quilt

Have you liked our "His and Her Hobbies" Facebook page? If not, click here!

Today we are linking up with Melinda at West Metro Mommy for Super Saturday Snapshots.

A few weeks ago I posted pictures of my first quilt that I made for my niece. I also mentioned that I was working on a bubble quilt for my nephew that was due this month. I finished the quilt last week but held off posting photos until the parents were able to see it first. Here are some of the pictures that I took of the quilt.

I made this rainbow pattern as it was requested by my sister in law. It creates a very bright and colourful quilt design. The finished quilt was 25" (63cm) X 45" (112cm)

A close up of the bubbles and the binding. I am still struggling to make the binding look perfect but that will come with practice.

I used a black fabric with coloured dots for the quilt back as it was a good contrast to all of the bright colours on the front of the quilt.

I had a lot of fun making this quilt as it seemed to go a lot quicker than the other quilt that I had made. It took a little while to make all of the puffs but once they were stuffed it was just a matter of sewing them all together. I used this pattern to make the puffs but I chose not to make the ruffle and made a simple binding to go around the edge instead.

If you would like a quilt like this for yourself or someone you know please check out my listing on my Etsy store and I will be happy to design one that is right for you. 

Have you ever made a bubble quilt or had one as a child?


  1. Wow! That is a beautiful creation.
    Lot of effort and time must have gone into it.
    I hope you make good sales. :)

  2. What a lovely job you did- designing it and everything. It'll be great in a baby's room.

  3. How beautiful! Love the rainbow colors and the bubbly should be a nice, huggable quilt for the baby. Thanks for sharing...and for visiting my blog.

  4. It reminds me of a pan of colorful rolls. Ha!

  5. The bubble quilt is really cool! I have never seen one before.

  6. Congrats! That is fantastic! Love the rainbow effect! Bindings are tricky, but do a Youtube search. there are some awesome tutorials. So .... what's your new project ??

  7. You did a great job on this quilt -- selecting the fabrics, designing the layout, and constructing it. The backing/binding fabric is the perfect choice to tie it all together. Your niece's family will treasure your creation for a long time. (I bookmarked the tutorial on Pinterest. Thanks for including that link.)
    Thank you for visiting my blog and leaving a comment.

  8. Wow that is such fun, and I bet it is really comfy to lie on.

  9. Great job! I love the rainbow effect. I have never made a bubble quilt, but they look so soft and poofy!
