Hubby's Quillow - Quilt As You Go!

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Sewing a 1/4" seam
  • Rotary cutting

Pattern Description:

Here's a tutorial for a quillow that's big enough to really wrap up in! My husband's been asking for years for a quillow that'll fold into a bed sized pillow, but that's also big enough to cover up with.

What's a Quillow? It's a quilt with a pocket, that folds up into a pillow. If you're like my family, there's always a quilt or twelve in your living room. A Quillow is a great way to make a quilt and be able to store it right on your couch! And when it's unfolded, there's that awesome pocket to tuck your feet into. This pocket's big enough for a cat too (jus ask my husband how I know that!)

This is a Quilt As You Go strip quilt, so it's meant to be pretty simple. There's only one block needed for this pattern, and you can make any block you choose.

NOTE: The Beetle block is not included, I don't have that ready for publishing yet.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • Approximately 74x80 (about 22x30 folded)


  • 3 yards black fabric
  • 3 yards of other colored fabric
  • 6 yards of batting
  • 6 yards of backing
  • Some additional fabrics and batting for making the pocket
  • 12 yards binding
  • thread to match
  • Heat and bond if necessary for your chosen block

You Will Also Need:

  • Sewing machine
  • Walking foot
