MY QUILLOW COLLECTION

I pretty much spent the month of December creating quillows (quilt + pillow) like a mad woman. When I figured out how to make quillows about over a year ago, I thought all my nephews and nieces should have one from their favorite aunt (me).

MY WONDER WOMAN QUILLOW!

With focus and determination, I decided my sisters and I should have matching quillows. However, my overachieving ambition and a broken sewing machine got the better of me and my quillow pieces collected dust (not really because they were stored in totes).

EMERSON’S QUILLOW — PART GREEN BAY PACKERS AND PART SKULLS.

Anyway, I started working on my quillow collection when my sister generously loaned her sewing machine to me and my amazing husband bought me a brand spanking new sewing machine. Luckily, I had several separate pieces completed and needed to piece everything together.

FOR MY SISTER, BECKY.

At this point, all my nephews and nieces have a quillow from their favorite aunt (Gavin refused to confirm this rumor) despite being a teeny bit past a birthday or some celebration deadline (a huge shout out to Ethan and Cole for being super cool about it).

QUILLOW FOR MY NEPHEW, ELLIOTT.

By the end of December, I completed five quillows and had them all ready for Christmas gifts. I’m pretty proud of myself since at least three of the quillows were promised for completion sometime in 2014. Oopsy. Again, in my defense, my sewing machine broke down in early 2014.

MY DECEMBER QUILLOW COLLECTION

But then again, my laziness prevented me from borrowing my sister or my mom’s sewing machine. At least I can start with the new year with a clean slate — no overdue quillows to worry about. Until I start making new promises.
