    Cool My first quillow

    Here it is...my first try at a quillow!!! I didn't quite follow the instructions I had, had to change a few things, it was a bit of a brain teaser.... but still I'm happy with how it turned out.
    The little star blocks were given to me probably 1 year ago, there were 6 - 8 made up in a bag with lots of already cut material to make some more, so I started to make some a while back.
    This will be a quillow for my oncologist whose wife had a baby not so long ago. Hope they like it....
    Thanks for looking

    I can just see the little owner in a few years time, trundling off to a friend's house for a sleep over with the quillow. Delightful!

    so cute, nicely done. i like quillows because you can stick your feet in the pocket... keeps them warm and keeps the cover in place.

    Your quillow is really cute. The bears are a perfect for the project. I see happy camping or sleeping over for the future use of this clever gift.

    I made quillows in the 80s but never thought of making the top from quilt blocks. I am sure she will be delighted with this lovely gift.

    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.
