A quillow is a quilt with a reversible pocket sewn on strategically so it can be folded up inside the pocket making a pillow or a cushion. There are many uses for your quillow and their functionality makes them really versatile. They are a great addition to your garden/outdoor living areas; very useful on those late chilly barbeque evenings.
They make fabulous gifts for birthdays, Christmas, and baby showers. They can be simple to make, especially if you choose a straightforward square design or more intricate to develop your sewing skills with a variety of new techniques. Whatever you decide to make you will go home with a finished quillow to be proud of which will undoubtedly become an heirloom for future generations.
You can also explore the possibility of making a memory quillow where recycled fabrics can be incorporated into the design such as denim jean squares, grannies old dresses or grandad's old cotton shirts, Tee shirts from past sports clubs and societies, sailing flags, etc the possibilities are endless! We can also add a pocket and/or handles for a truly versatile project.
