It was over 10 years ago when Steve and I received this quillow (quilt and pillow combo) from my sister for a Christmas gift. Unfortunately for us, we did not get to keep it. Our wonderful son decided it was a great gift and took it for himself.
Some kids have a blankie, stuffed animal, suck their thumb.....ours would keep this quillow to the better end.
I do not remember when, Nathan decided that "Quilly" was becoming too small. Luckily for him, there was a awesome aunt and grandma out there to come to his rescue. Jodie had made two quilts out of the same material and she bequeathed hers to Nathan. Then Grandma sewed the two together to make a gigantic blanket.
Quilly went on to live many more years. Only needing minor repairs here and there. But last year, it was really time to part with this beloved blanket.....and he wouldn't. Grandma even made him a new quillow which was to be rejected. Quilly continued to disintegrate.
Sadly, this past week, Nathaniel decided that he would have to part ways with his beloved "Quilly". After years of teasing my son about this blanket, I found this day kind of sad. After all, we all have our quirks.
