Hi I'm Skyler, and I'm into crafts, sewing, baking, and other domestic intrigue!

Other Bubble Quilts

I’ve had a couple people send me pictures of their bubble quilts that they’ve made and I thought it’d be fun to share them with everybody. It’s always fun to see someone else’s take on a tutorial, it keeps things interesting! If you’re new to my blog, here’s my tutorial so you can make your own bubble quilt! If you’ve made one and you’d like to share it, please send me a picture at skyler@awaitingada.com

This one is from Erin (I love the color scheme!)
Β This one is from Maria (who is selling them on her etsy page if you’re interested)
Here’s my grandmothers (The blanket that I based mine off of from my childhood memories)

This is my new one I’m working on with mini bubbles

and here’s my original!

  1. Hello! What are the number of bubbles for a twin spread? Thanks!

    • Rebecca, well, I’ve never made one for a twin bed, but here’s my thought. A standard twin bedspread is about 40″x76″, so if you’re making the bubbles from my design (with a base square of 4.5″) you can do 10 X 20 bubbles so that you have 200 total bubbles. This should give you a nice twin size blanket! I hope that helps!

      • Hi Skyler,
        My granddaughter just informed me she wants this for her college dorm room. She has an ex-long twin and I planned on making a double to hide underneath her bed, she will have 6″inch risers to lift her bed up. I have only made baby quilts, very basic, I am still pretty new at this. What do I do for the measurements on one so big? Thanks for your help. : )

  2. I just stumbled upon this! Thanks for linking to my blanket and thanks for the tutorial! I just made one for a family member’s baby shower and sent all the ladies who wanted to try it to your page!

  3. I did a bubble quilt using 6″x 6″ pinned to 4.5″ x 4.5 ” loved how it came out.I would like to try a mini quilt so what would the measurments be for a mini quilt?
    Thanks Sandie

    • For my mini bubbles I use a 3.5″ base square and a 5″ top square. Have fun!

    • I just wanted to thank you for the tutorial. my daughters are spoiled by their grandma and want for nothing.. so for my youngest 1st birthday I requested fabric squares instead of presents. I made her a rainbow bubble quilt wuth the squares her loved ones gave us plus extra fabric I had at home. it turned out beautifully and was my first quilting experience. thsnk you for making her birthday gift so special. jen

  4. Those are just the most adorable blankets I have ever seen! I love the bubbles.

  5. My name is Sandy T.and I would like to thank you for posting a picture of my first time try at making a Bubble Quilt on your site.I enjoyed the challenge and loved the outcome.Again thank you.

  6. I work at a fabric store and am always looking for new projects. Recently A lady came in and bought a ton of fabric. I asked her what it was for and she said a bubble quilt. As soon as I got home I did an internet search which brought me to your site. You’re so talented and you make and explain the project very simple. Thank you. I can’t wait to start πŸ™‚

    • Kasi, thanks! I love hearing that people are spreading the word about how cute and fun these blankets are to make! Have fun making one, and don’t forget to send me a picture!

  7. I have made these for years and everyone loves them. We call them biscuit quilts. They are time consuming but isn’t that the case for all wonderful things

    • I agree, that’s part of what makes them special. You have to REALLY love the people you make them for πŸ™‚

  8. Do you have a video tutorial. I would love to see that as well,
    Love love your quilts
    GOD BLESS!

  9. can a beginning quilter make this quilt? I have never done anything like this before. I would like to make a 30X39. How many puffs? Still 6×6? Your work is beautiful. I want to try this for my new granddaughter.

    • You can definitely do this if you’re a beginner, just be patient. A 30″x39″ would work out to be about a 8×10 puff rectangle for a total of 80 puffs. I hope that answered your question. Have fun!

  10. Why can’t you cut those little diagonal slits before you put the squares together? No danger of accidentally cutting through to the top, and a lot faster

  11. Looking forward to trying this sometime soon πŸ™‚

  12. The one your grandmother made looks huge! How big is it?

    • The one she made is a 13×19 bubble rectangle for a total of 247 puffs. That ends up being about 52″x76″, not including the ruffle.

  13. Thanks for sharing , my cousin sent me ur link & I guess I’m trying these interesting blankets for babies .. WOW , u have talent …. God Bless u …

  14. My mom came across your website and sent it to me a couple of weeks ago. I had no attempted to make one of these because I find sewing them while stuffed to be a royal pain. I love your new tutorial! It makes it so much easier. I am 30 weeks pregnant and making one for our new little boy and I do not mind sitting on the couch with a movie in and hand sewing the cuts back together. Thank You so much, I will make sure to send you pictures when I am finished.

    • I know, the original method is pretty brutal, I only did one that way and it took me FOREVER! I don’t mind hand sewing either. Congrats on your baby on the way! I’d love to see your pictures after you’ve finished it!

  15. Hello!! ,so cute!
    I would like to make a “crib size”
    So about 45(48)x60

    Help! Lol

    • A 48″x60″ would correspond to a 12×15 rectangle for a total of 180 bubbles. Hope that helps!

  16. Thanks for posting my little Strawberry Shortcake quilt. An old friend became a grandmother for the first time and I was looking for something really special and sweet to mark the blessed event. Your quilts are lovely and such an inspiration for one of my favorite things….functional art! I’m working on a large one with a rainbow pattern now. When I read that you also have a tutorial for mini-bubbles, I immediately knew I’d by giving that style a try, as well! Thanks to you and little Ada!

  17. Hi, i am in the process of hand sewing my daughter a twin sized quilt. i ran into the issue of it being hard to sew the minky on with the stuffing in it. i only did one row then found out. how did you sew the minky on? should i do it before or after stuffing the bubbles? and also i was wondering if you have ever tried to do one without a ruffle because the ruffle seems like so much work. i just dont want it to look funny without one.

    • Yep, I’ve done some with no ruffle, and some with a mitered corner edging. I think they turn out just great without the ruffle. Especially if you’re doing a large one, the ruffle would be extremely difficult. As for sewing the backing on to the blanket, if you look at the “New Improved Method” you can see that I leave the outside ring of bubbles unstuffed until after I sew the backing on to the bubble front. Then with the opening that I left for turning I stuff the outside ring of bubbles. Hope that helps!

  18. I looked through all of your pages with the different types of bubble quilts. I love the one from your Grandmother; it is the typical Grandmother quilt and the patterns were exactly as I had imagined it to be, beautiful. The mini bubble quilt is amazing. I don’t think I could do that one so I will just sit and remember how beautiful it is. Thank you again for posting such beautiful works of Love.
