Tutorial:: how to make a sucky puff quilt
Finished Size approx 42 1/2" x 54" or 28 rows of 21 Sucky Puffs.
These are not to be confused with Suffolk Puffs. The Sucky Puff (so named by S.J.V.H and friends who stitched the quilt), or yo-yo quilt is very easy to make. Once you have alot of Suckies, you can turn them into quilts, table runners, cushions or hang over a window or make a wall display.
Step 1: Use the template shape provided to make yourself a template from template plastic or cardboard. The seams are added in the template.
note: the template when downloaded should measure 4" in diametre. Though really you could use any size you like.
TIP: The stitches don't need to be neat and tidy. The bigger stitches work better!
Step 3: When you have sewn all around the cirlce, pull the thread to gather the Sucky Puff and finish with a secure knot.
Stitching the Sucky Puff
The front of the Sucky Puff is the side with the gathered edge. You can sew a small Pom Pom in the centre of each Sucky Puff to finish.
When you have enough suckies...It's time to Assemble!
Once you have enough rows, you can start sewing the rows together. On the edge of the finished quilt sew large Pom Poms at intervals of about 6 Sucky Puffs.
Make sure you show me your finished Sucky Puff quilts!
