Quillow

It's so frustrating! I finally have a free day today to catch up with emails and blogs, but the laptop is still having some hiccups! When I tried to open a blog site (including my own), the blog opened up on the screen but then froze on that page and closed down the whole thing after a minute. ... Argghgh.... at least I can still get to my email... no problem with reading the messages..... but to send a reply took FOREVER! Sigh.... I will have to ask the in-house tech to take a another look.

Well, it's a good thing that I still can open blogger and make a post.

Every year Sweetie Pie's school have a Basket Auction. It's a fundraiser to raise money for the school field trips. Each class supposed to make a theme basket, and the supplies for the basket are donated by the students and their families. When my friend, Pam, asked me to help with our girls' class basket, I offered to make a quilt since I haven't been as involved in the school PTA as in the past (feeling guilty here).

That was at the beginning of March, but when the last week of the month came around with NO quilt in sight, that quilt plan quickly changed into a quillow instead.

What is a quillow? It's a quilt that folds up into a pillow.

Can you guess what is the theme of Sweetie Pie's class?

HORSES ....

I love Sweetie Pie's teacher and so do her students. She is the best! Mrs. Mathews loves horses and owns a couple of them. Naturally, the kids picked horses as their theme.


For the front of the quilt, I found a flannel with horses on it by Debbi Mum on sale at Jo-Ann's Craft Store. The back is burgundy with little yellow stars. I also used the same stars fabric for the pillow front.
Here's that horses flannel. As usual, there's always a helper around... she's playing peek-a-boo here. LOL.... See those eyes? ....
See that nose? ....


How about now? lol So cute! Look at those pleading eyes! I had the quilt on the table. She wanted to try it out. Sorry little doxie.... this one is not for you either. :(
The quillow instructions can be found in Jan./Feb. 2007 issue of Fon's & Porter's Love ofQuilting magazine. The horse silhouette and chenille rope inspirations came from another issue of Love of Quilting. I don't have a pic of it but will look for the magazine if anyone needs to know which issue it is.

Technically, this project should be counted as a March project for the One Project a Month since it was finished yestesday morning before I headed out to work. However, I didn't get a chance to post it last night. It will be counted as an April project instead.

Beautiful work Rhonda! That flannel looks SO cuddly. Hope you raise lots of money with the auction.

I am about just starting a quillow. I received the fat quarters in the mail today. The pattern is also in the May 2009 Quick Quilts magazine. I'm doing a boy scout fabric one...

Yours is VERY cute!

Very cute - the quillow and the dog. I love quillows although it's been a while since I've made one - what could be a better a pillow and quilt!
