Patchwork & Quilting : Quillow

A Quillow is a quilt that is also a pillow. This is very useful for keeping in the car, for students, sleepovers, taking to concerts or sports as well as being good as a cosy TV blanket.

The quilt folds in a certain way nice and simply and turns into a pocket that is affixed to the back. The cushion cover is also a Log Cabin design that matches the quilt top.

In this class, you will not be able to finish the quillow in one day but you will get full instructions and perhaps finish making your Log Cabin top or front of the quillow.

“I haven’t used my sewing machine for years and was quite nervous about starting again. I needn’t have worried, the course was taken at my pace and there was loads of help from Anne. I’m looking forward to the rest of the training days in the ‘Block’ and have resolved to keep sewing!!”

Sally Johnson, Block a Month

“I booked the Block a Month early this year and it’s been fabulous. I have had loads of help from Anne and the team and feel much more confident in my sewing skills now. Let’s just say a few family members will be getting homemade Christmas presents this year. Next year, I may give embroidery a try!!”
