Childs Quillow


Brady Kalivoda drives a Top Fuel Dragster for Warrior Racing.  This is a picture of Brady holding a baby quillow. We met Brady at the U.S. Nationals in 2011. One of his sponsors, Moorefield Construction, arranged for us to meet Brady and spend a little time with him in the pits. His girlfriend, Althea, and his newborn son, Brooks (8 mo. old at the time) were there as well. Brady was so gracious and so welcoming we became instant fans. We wound up spending the day and a good part of the evening with Brady and his family and the crew.  I decided to make Brooks a quillow as a gift to the Kalivoda family for their kindness and generosity to us that afternoon.

If you look closely at the picture, you will see that there are some photo transfers as well as some MC shirt emblems.  If you don’t know what a quillow is, let me explain.  From the front it looks just like a quilt, but on the back there is a pocket where you can put your feet to keep them warm.  When not using the quilt, it can be folded in such a way that it folds into the pocket and becomes a pillow. A rather simple pattern that has such wonderful benefits, and the smiles from the recipients warm your heart.
