Derek’s Puffy Quilt

Derek, my husband, wanted a quilt. I made him one following the same pattern that I made for Amanda. It was hard to make without him seeing it, but I did it. He also wanted it puffy, like a tied quilt. Care told me once that the fatter the batting the harder to quilt…holy shiznit! It’s true!
Have you ever seen a quilted puffy quilt?
Neither have I. Tied quilts are puffy. Quilted quilts are mostly flat.
What do you do then when you sweet Husband wants a puffy quilt?
Oh! I have an idea!
Use Soft N Craft Poly-fil Extra-loft batting and quilt with small circles every 4-6 inches!
I made three or four pencil-eraser sized circles 2″-5″ apart one a-top each other then moved onto the next circle.
Is it bad if I like the front, and LOVE the back? The back. The black is Kona. Shocking, I know.
Derek approves!  It totally worked!
