Hi!

I saw this at a fair and thought: I can make these.... I can make these as gifts too. So the first one I made was for a BD gift to a friend who's in a tiki kind of mood.

It is a pillow with a blanket inside. The pillow is made from a fabric I got from my great-Aunt and the blanket is fleece.









I'm so ready for Christmas... 

Thanks for looking!

I absolutely love this.  I have a fleece on my sofa for the cat during the winter and never really know where to store it for the rest of the year.  Inside a pillow is just a perfect idea.

Wow, that's really really neat. Is there any chance you could give just a small tutorial? I don't need much, but for some reason I just can't figure out how it was made from the picture, and it doesn't look that complicated.

I LOVE personal swaps! If you see something I made that you like, and have anything fun or interesting or silly, tell me.

I love this!  My husband had one when we were kids with a football pattern on it and he loved it.  Maybe I should make him an updated version for our anniversary Smiley

aka a quillow. quilt + pillow.
I've seen this made as actually quilts too. I've given and sold TONS out of fleece. they're great in the back of the car in the winter. people like them alot in sports patterned fleece--tailgating.

Creative thinking may mean simply the realization that theres no particular virtue in doing things the way they always have been done.

I love it, but I think I wouldn't ever be able to fold it right. I struggled with oragami in elementary art class. Sad

Love is patient, Love is kind, It does not envy; it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude it is not self-seeking it is not easily angered it keeps no record of wrongs. love does not delight in evil but rejoices in the truth It always protects always trusts, always hopes, always perserveres

Folding is easy. Make the pillow part one ninth of the size of the quilt/blanket. eg. If the blanket is three foot by three foot, the pillow is a foot quare. When folding, fold in thirds towards the middle, left then right side into centre so that you have a long rectangle with the pillow at the end. Then fold in thirds the other way, do two folds, then you will have a square the same size as the pillow an the piece with the pillow on it. Hold pillow open and fold the last time into the pillow.

You can actually make the length longer which it looks like they did in these pics which are pretty clear. I like mine even.

That is super sweet, I've always had a soft spot in my heart for quillows, but have never owned one myself, you've inspired me to make one!  Smiley I love the flowers!
