Quillows by Fran
Welcome and thanks for stopping by!


                    WELCOME TO MY WEB STORE

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@quillowbyfran.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.  However 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 I make are about six feet long and over three and a half wide (approx. 44" X 70"). when used as a pillow, the rest of the quilt is folded up into a 17" X 17"square pillow. Each quillow is machine stitched, 100% cotton fabric and filled with poly batting.  All are 100% machine wash and dryable

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 recently added two categories to my web site consisting of "Hanging Quilts" and "Bed 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 quilts and have posted them for purchase. 

 I will be posting scheduled listed craft shows for 2016 as they are confirmed.  Come by and visit me if you are in the area.
