    Just use the same pattern and then use cotton instead of fleece.

    My father was born and raised in a small town. He received one of these as a thank you gift from a ladies' group for designing and maintaining the landscaping at one of the city's historical sites. He has since passed away, and the Quillow was given to me. I have been delighted with it. It is so convenient to be able to fold it into a pillow, and wonderfully convenient to be able to leave it on the sofa all day without it seeming to visitors that you are camped out in the living room all day! Love it! These really do make wonderful gifts!

    These are wonderful baby gifts when made with a textured velour on one side and smooth velour on the other and can be scaled to size.

    I used the same fabrics in lavender, a friend's favorite color, and made one that could be used on her queen sized bed. It was a retirement gift. She keeps it on a special quilt stand when it's not in use.

    It is also nice to combine one of these with a matching picnic basket that you create by lining a basket with fabric and making a 2 part lid (cardboard cut to size, then covered with batting and fabric) to attach to the handle with ribbons that are attached to the lid. Thus can be done without any sewing - using only glue. Sometimes, I've offered these as graduation presents, but more often as wedding presents.

    THink how nice this would be for a person who flies alot! You could have your own clean pillow and blanket with you without looking obivious . Just put a strap on it so it's easy to carry ...hang it on your arm or onto the top of your carry on.
