    Looking for a quilt patten that folds up into a pocket!!!

    I have been looking for this quilt pattern. It is a quilt that has a pocket on it and the quilt folds away into this pocket for storage. I can not remember if it had a flap with a button that closed up or just open. I saw this quilt in hospital on my dear mums bed in her final days, It looked such a great idea and i want to make some for my kids for in the car. I just can't remember what it looked like. Any one out there know of these quilts or have any pics of them please.

    Mandybear, these are known as Quillows around here. Our quilt guild does them for charity. I'll see if I can find links for you:

    it's best not to try to put it out with gasoline.

      These are for sale everywhere around here. I asked the Amish woman at work "what the heck is a Quillow". When I went to her house to buy some hostas, she showed me the quillow. It is really a great idea. A combination lap quilt and pillow.

        Thanks for these links. I didn't know there was such a thing as a quillow. I know what I'm going to do for our vacation now.

          Michele, making quillows will become addictive!

            I've never heard of quillows. What an awesome idea! Definately on the bucket list. Sounds like they can be as addictive as totes.

                  Here is a tutorial with photos and I love how the pillow includes a carry handle.
