    Quillow question.

    Can I use a store bought microfiber throw for a quillow? What type of fabrics are most used for them?

    Re: Quillow question.

    By definition a quillow is a quilt that folds up into a pillow (attached case on back.)

    That said I would imagine they are made from whatever fabrics that people use in their quilts. Your question is very general, as I have no clue what you want to use the microfiber blanket for -the batting? the backing? the whole quillow?

    I - is it INSPIRING?
    N - is it NECESSARY?
    K - is it KIND?

      I would think you could add a piece of material (fleece or otherwise to make the pillow part.

        I made a quillow and it wasn't hard to do. I used fleece and used fleece for the pocket with batting in between the layers. There are tutes on you tube, don't know if Jenny did a tutorial or not.

          I think I got the Quillow making all wrong. I was thinking of making a large pieced and quilted pillow front and a ready-made throw for the inside.

              I watched Quillow 101 video and think you could use the blanket you bought for the main part and make the pillow case portion and attach it.

                I came across this youtube the other day.
                A quillow made with a fleece throw, maybe it's what you were thinking of?

                  I'm currently on quillow no.5, my daughters friends all love them and whenever a baby is due they put their order in! I have made a couple using fleece as the backing. My template is 10 blocks that measure about 12" finished size. Make the quilt section using 9 of the blocks. For block 10 I add a 2" border all round in the same fabric I use for the binding. This is sewn centred at the bottom of the 'wrong side'. Hope this makes sense to you.

                    I forgot all about quillows. I made a lot of them in the late 80s. I will look the pattern up on youtube. I am sure my grands would love them. Thanks for jog to my memory : )
