A + B = A Clever Quillow!

This past Saturday I attended a workshop with Andrea and Bunty from the Lutterworth Piecemakers to make a very different quillow. The construction of this quillow (quilt and pillow) is slightly different in that it folds to the centre and 4 triangular flaps wrap around and fasten to make a pillow...and when it's a quilt the flaps open up and attach to the top with elastic and buttons.

These two quilts below were made by our tutors to show us how they should look when they are finished. (as always, click on the pictures to see bigger versions of the pictures)



This is my work space. (See that Bernina again :o)



This is me and my finished top...do you remember these blocks from here?



And these are the quilts made by my fellow class mates...Isn't it amazing how different they all are!



Well that's another top to the pile...hmmm I think I better get quilting some of these things!

Jane, your quilt is wonderful and I really like the way how different they are. I've been wondering exactly what a quillow was (knowing it was probably a quilt and pillow, but not sure exactly how) and now I know, thanks!

Clever idea and very pretty quilt, Jane. I like this way better than the quillows that get tucked into a "pillow case" way.

Fantastic, your quillow looks great.

What a great quillow, using all sorts of blocks which go together well. And lovely to see everyone else's too!

I've never seen a quillow like that before - very effective and I love the way they all came out differently.

What a great idea -- love how different they look and yours, of course, is just lovely!

Sounds like the workshop was a big success. They all came out great. My son Patrick has been wanting a quillow for ages and I plan to make him one for Christmas. New idea to think about !

Fabulous class! Those are the best looking quillows I have ever seen.

Never seen a quillow done that way before - interesting!
