How To Make A Quillow




 Why make a quillow and not just a quilt?

With high school or college graduations quickly approaching, or for an unexpected birthday or even a great Christmas gift....what better gift to give from the heart than a quickly made 'quillow'? A cross between a quilt and a pillow, it can be as simple as sewing two pieces of 45" x 72" fabric together and adding a pillow section of 18" -20" square......or as complicated as any scrap or quilt pattern pieced design you might choose for the quilt top and pillow portions. Reverse the pocket opening to the top, add straps and you have a wonderful baby quillow for a gift. You can even add extra outside pockets for baby supplies, and use it as a changing pad or play mat!

See my two original posts about different styles that I have made..a third one is in progress..on my primary blog where all tutorials are updated. It just got too complicated trying to update thousands of files on both of my main blogs.

And using a similar concept, I also made:
