The Quillow Near Failure

One of my recent craft projects was this fleece quillow (a quilt/blanket that folds into a pocket becoming a pillow.)  It is a Christmas gift for my adorable niece. It looks great now, but it was quite a challenge getting there.

Somehow I managed to turn an "under an hour craft" into a three night ordeal. I mean, seriously! Who makes five errors in a simple project?  Without going into all the details, I'll just say that most of the pink applique work was not part of my original plan, but added to cover up my mistakes. Although not part of the original plan, I like the extra applique on both the blanket and the pillow. I think I'll intentionally add it to the other gifts on my list!
