Quillows..........

A quillow is a pillow and a quilt. When it's all folded up it looks like a pillow like this: (as always click on the photos for more detail)



When you unfold it, it is a quilt, with a pocket where you can put your feet into, like this:



I first mentioned back in June of this year on this post
that I was going to be making quillows for my two nieces and nephew for Christmas. It had taken me this long to finally get them made. I must say by the time I had made the third one, I had got it down to a fine art. I used this pattern to make them. Here's hoping that they will like them?

The following photos, sort of show you how to fold it back into a pillow. I made all three of mine out of flannel, but regular cotton material would be fine as well.







I still haven't finished the child's quilt I spoke about last week, will post photos of that when I get it finished, hopefully some time this week.

So that's what a quillow looks like. Had imagined just a quilted pillow (if you see what I mean). They look lovely - a great idea.
