Baby Quillow finished

One of my co-workers is about to become a great-grandma any day now. I made this little snowball quilt for "Jordyn". Can't wait to see that new baby boy!
Here's the quilt all tucked into it's pillow. I think I should've made the pillow sleeve a bit bigger, but a little grunting and tugging gets it in alright.
Here is the quilt out of the pillow. I've washed and dried it and it's ready to be deliverd to it's new owner.
The pocket is on the back of the quilt. There's a trick to folding so it goes in nicely. Instructions on how to do that will follow after the next picture.
I've printed the label on suitable printable fabric, did a little stitching to make a border and wa-la! Click on the picture to read the cute little poem I found online. I've wanted to use this poem for a while now and this was the perfect quilt to put it on.

If you're so inclined to make your own quillow, here are the instructions on how to fold it. A bit tricky at first, but so easy. Remember to start out with the quilt right side up.

That little quilt is just adorable and I never thought of making a quillow for a baby quilt. The label is so cute I'll have to use that poem on the next one I do. Thanks for sharing.

What a wonderful little quilt. I've never made one of these, but always admired them.
