Hi, my name is Fran and I have been making hand crafted QUILLOWS since 2000.  Quillows can be used by anyone no matter size, age or gender its the perfect fit.  Enjoy your shopping experience. If you have any questions or requests please feel free to contact me at: fran@quillowsbyfran.com

How to understand the in stock numbers

The #'s that you see mean that I have enough fabric to make that many quillows. Therefore when ordering remember that they still have to be made.  Please allow 14 days or less to have order shipped.  As the year goes on my inventory builds up and it will be shipped immediatly.


 What is a Quillow? 

A quillow is a personal-sized quilt that can be quickly and easily folded to make a decorative pillow.  As a pillow, it can complement any decor with its themed settings or designs. Unfolded as a quilt, you can snuggle from head-to-toe!  Also when it is opened it forms a pocket on the reverse side.  This pocket is to be used to keep your feet warm, while sitting in your favorite chair.

All the quillows start as a pillow which measures 17"X17". When unfolded  the quilt measures 42" wide by 72"long. Each quillow is machine stitched, 100% cotton fabric and filled with 4oz, poly batting.  All are 100% machine wash and dry,

These are not just for children, they are for any age, size or gender.  I have heard many uses over the years such as: in cars, campers, boats, on airplanes, daycare mats, sleep overs, dorm rooms,  retirement homes and above all when you relax in your own home.

This unique product was first made in 1898 and also used the name "Quillow".  Therefore no trade mark or patent can be obtained.  Since 2000 I have participated in an average of 30 craft festivals a year in South Carolina, Virginia, Pennsylvania, Maryland and Delaware.  

Please check back often. My products change regularly. 

I have added a categorie to my web site consisting of "Hanging Quilts". These articles were made by Barbra Baumann who quilted for several decades.  Unfortunately she has suffered a disability that precludes her from continuing her passion.  I have obtained several of her quality wall hanging quilts and have posted them for purchase. 

 I will be posting scheduled listed craft shows for 2017 as they are confirmed.  Come by and visit me if you are in the area.
