A combination of a quilt and a pillow is called a quillow. The basic idea is that you fold the quilt into an attached pouch and when it's all sealed up it looks like a pillow. On the back of each quillow, there is an 17 '' square, reinforced pocket that serves a dual purpose. When it is a pillow, the rest of the quillow is folded up into this pocket. When it is opened into a quilt, the pocket is a wonderful foot warmer :-)
They are popular for kids' sleepovers or for grownups being cozy by the TV. When it’s a quilt you have a pocket to keep your feet warm. Its the go everywhere blanket because it looks pretty and folds neatly into itself.
There are two types of Quillows:
*one is 100% cotton fabric on top and bottom and the batting is a polyester hi-loft fiberfill inside
* another type of Quillo come with soft flannel on one side of the Quilt.
They are aproximatelly 42"x71" unfolded and 17"x17" as a pillow. All are machine quilted and the batting is bonded polyester making them machine wash and dry beautifully. Each Quillow hand tied at 7 inch intervals.
Quillos are just the right size for everywhere, even right now while you are at the computer.
Prices started at $60 and depends on "difficulty" of Quillow, as well on the type/price of used fabric.
Currently I am making Quillows with images of French Bulldog and Pug with Hickory background color. Coordinating fabric may vary. But if you want to put an order for your other favorite breed of dog or cat, or even horse or exotic animal, please feel free to ask me. Please, allow 10 to 14 days to made your quillow.
Quillows don't take up much space and have so many uses:
* Keeps you warm on chilly days and nights while watching TV or reading
*Great for kids in the car - carry them right into the house and tuck them into bed
*Perfect for nursing home residents

*They make a very unique gifts!!!
