I have a book, Learn Patchwork by Lynette~Merlin Syme pub. by HarperCollins.
It gives 2 types of puff patchwork - one we call Suffolk Puffs but I think
Americans call yoyos. This is a circle of material with a running stitch
around the outside - you can put some filling in before pulling the thread
tight then join into a quilt. The other method is 2 squares of material 1 a
bit bigger than the other. Put a little pleat in the corners of the larger
square before sewing it to the smaller - leave a bit unsewn in the seam to
put some filling in. Again join these together to make a quilt of any size.
Hope this helps, Maggie
