Default Remember Quillows?

Has anyone made one of these lately? I made a couple more than 20 years ago, and can't seem to find my pattern. The lap part was rail fence then cut for a diagonal placement. Any other ideas out there, or sources where I can find directions? I'm not very good at just making something up for a specific size. Would appreciate that, as well as any pictures of yours Thanks, and happy quilting - Terri

I have 5 quillows in my house that live happily on the couch, recliner and by 2 of the beds :-) They are a great 'gift'

I have quillows lows in the car very useful. I have made 2 different styles.
A . The typical one joined on 3 sides to make the pillow on the back.
B. I made quilts for young nephews who go camping with their parent who are scout leaders. Idea was for extra warmth. The cushion on the back I placed tabs in the middle of 3 sides and joined tabs onto quilt this method left the corners open. The 3 year old said it was easier to fold up.

I have a "quillow" made from a piece of fleece with tennis racquets , no quilting involved. I didn't make it but found it when DD played tennis in HS. She loved it for the away games on the bus.

Our quilting group made quillows last Wednesday. Most are destined for the couch.

Thank you for starting this thread. Watching my grandchildren all day last Saturday, reminded me I needed something soft and warm. I plan to make them for sitting in the bleachers for football, socceer, basketball games.
