nope, but you can carry it around.

why yes it is! but wait…

…is it a quilt as well..?

quillow opened up is it a ...

yep! that too!

“what?!”  i hear you say!  “who, what, how?!”

(: easy – it’s a Quillow! or a Planket if you prefer ;) -  a pillow that unfolds into a quilt or if you’d rather, a quilt that folds up into a pillow.

quillow in action is it a ...

I’ve been dying to figure out how to make one of these,  so when Laurie kindly sent me some of her new line  Pooches & Pickups to have a play with I just couldn’t resist & it all came together really easily without any unpicking or rethinking! Yay! I love it when a plan comes together ;) I took some process shots along the way so if you’re interested I can put together a tutorial of sorts, or the process at least?

I kept the blocks simple, in a fence rail pattern, letting Laurie’s fun designs speak for themselves. I raided the stash and added in some solids, checks, spots & stripes & backed it all with a super soft & snugly chocolate brown chenille. So cuddly!

quillow backing is it a ...

This little pillow, come play mat, come quilt with a built in foot warmer (!) & useful carry handle for sleepovers etc,  is for a  little chap whose daddy drives a truck ( or ‘ute’ in Aussie speak ;) ) and they have a big black dog. Pooches & Pickups couldn’t be more perfect for him!

Finished size of quilt is approx 48″ x 64″ & the  pillow folds up to approx 16″.

So……do you fancy having a play with some Pooches & Pickups too?  Laurie has a fat quarter bundle of the full range for one lucky reader. Yay! Thanks Laurie x  For a chance to win please leave one comment only on this post telling  us what you’d make with Pooches & Pickups, we’d love to hear! ( please make sure you fill in your email address  correctly for a valid entry) The giveaway is open to all  & a winner will be randomly drawn on Saturday 14th May  at midday Brissie time & announced here shortly after that, the winner will also be notified by email.

I think a bento box quilt would be a lovely way to combine and show off these great patterns and colors. They work so well in strip-form – shown by your quilt and so many others, that this would be a funny quilt pattern for them too as well. I have 2 cute little nephews that are all boy – would love to make a quilt for each of them out of this fabric! They idolize their grandpa (my dad) and he happens to drive a pick up truck and has a big black dog too :)

What a great idea. I keep telling myself that next I need to make a lapquilt with a matching pillowcase for it to live in when not in use. I think it would make a lovely Christmas present. I may even tackle if if the Pooches and pickups comes my way. It’s just crying out to be made into a quilt or pillows so why not both?

Love your pillow/blanket, so clever and cute! I’d probably make a quilt for my son: he doesn’t like blankets yet (nearly 2 years old and no blankie!), so I keep thinking that if I find the perfect cute fabric combo, he’ll finally like one. Regardless, it’s adorable fabric! Thanks for the opportunity!

Darling quillow!

Actually my DH fell in love with this fabric. Can you believe it. Since he saw it he has been going on about needing a quilt to keep in his 1952 Ford pickup (that the dog rides in the back of, of course). He claims it would make it look more classic if a quilt was draped over the seat at car shows. So if I won that is what I would make, a quilt for my DH’s classic truck.

My Little boy just moved into his first big boy bed and hence needs a new “no longer baby” quilt… Being a boy he loves dogs and trucks.
But I am far away in Germany. So it’s okay, if I cannot play along due to shipping.

Oh my,yes! I would love to win some of these fun fabrics. I think I’d make a whole batch of cherry-stone heating pads to give as Christmas gifts this year. Wouldn’t that be fun and cheery? Thanks for the giveaway.

I love the quillow. I would love to make some of those for my kids to use in the car on long trips. If I won this fabric I would use it to make something for my son, who loves both Pooches & Pickups!

How ADORABLE!!
Both your fabric line and the creation. This may not be original, but I’d love to make a quillow from the set you’re giving away! Would love to see a tutorial!
Thanks for the opportunity,

How beautiful! The quillow and the fabrics. I would make a gift for a baby boy just born to friends who live halfway around the world from us, in New Zealand. How about a quilt made in Denmark with fabric from Australia for a boy in New Zealand?

oh, a super duper giveaway! Wish I had the skills for pj’s, but alas I’ve not ventured into clothing, yet! So……a quilt for my youngest it would have to be. Poor boy still tries to wrap himself up in his cot quilt!

I love this! I’ve been adding similar projects to my site (FaveQuilts.com). I added a bed roll tutorial (http://www.favequilts.com/Nap-Mats/DIY-Bed-Roll) yesterday and a really similar pillow/quilt/backpack last week (http://www.favequilts.com/Kids-Quilts/Blanket-to-Backpack-Tutorial-Part-1). I’m looking for more of this type of project to add to my site, and I would love to add yours once you write it up. I’ll keep an eye out for it!

I’m quite torn – i think that this fabric would be equally cute in dog accessories (i’m thinking collar, leash, bag for carrying toys, treats, and pick-up bags!) as it would be in vehicle accessories (i’m thinking car garbage bag, head rest cover, and visor-mounted cd holder!)
