What materials did you use? Kaffe Fassett cotton fabric left over from my "Spiral Strips" quilt; cotton thread; polyester wadding

What are you most proud of? Although it's made of the same fabric as "Spiral Strips", it has a completely different look and folds up neatly into its pocket on the back to make a cushion (or pillow) when the quilt isn't needed. I decided to free motion quilt it and did so, but made the mistake of using invisible thread, so I couldn't see where I'd been! Oh well - learn by our mistakes and I won't make that one again!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? This is really easy and, if you're making a quillow, you can use any design you like for the pocket which makes the cushion when turned inside out.

Another quillow to love! Love the bright colours in this one, and the simplicity of the stripes, just beautiful.

Thank you. It's funny, but although I've used the same fabric, is hasn't come out as bright at the Spiral Strips one!

Another beauty! I just love all your projects!

Very nice - love the colors! I've made that pattern and I love the variation on the rail fence. And now I finally know what a Quillow is! I always wondered.

I've popped over to your project page and found the quilt you've made from the same pattern and it's lovely! Amazing how different the same pattern can look in different fabrics, isn't it? Patricia

This came out fabulous! I'm going to have to look for that book. I love being able to use every bit of fabric I can. Love your colors but then who doesn't like Kaffe Fassett?

Pam and Nicky Lintott have written a whole series of books of patterns for pre-cut jelly rolls, charm squares, layer cakes etc. They're certtainly available on Amazon and I really do recommend them as they're very easy to follow and are very clearly illustrated. I understand there are two more in course of completion for publication shortly.

Thanks for the info Pat. Have you taken a look at Kimberly Einmo's Magic Jelly Roll class on Craftsy? I'm doing that one too. She's great with jellies!

No - I haven't looked at tht yet but, then, I only discovered Craftsy a number of days ago! I've got lots to learn yet and I know the website is going to help me a huge amount. I've been in "conversation" with lots of people already and am like a kid with a new toy with it - it's marvellous! Best wishes - Patricia

A vibrant use of colors = georgeous!

Thank you! I don't think I can actually do quiet and peaceful quilts. Just got to do the cheerful and bright ones!
