You’re going to love this Pocket-Pillow Cuddle Quilt Tutorial which features our Adorable Animals Cuddle Cakes!

Polly, who blogs at Pieces by Polly, made this Cuddle quilt for her school’s special ed class.

Polly used Cuddle Cakes Adorable Animals precuts (two packs) for the front, Cuddle 3® in Chocolate for the binding and Baby Leopard Cuddle in Camel/Brown for the back. For extra interest, Polly added a few Animal print square blocks to the back.

This Cuddle quilt also makes a great tea party blanket 🙂
And since this Cuddle quilt was made with the special ed class in mind, besides the bamboo blend batting that Polly used on the inside, she also used a layer of Shield Interlining as a moisture block.  (A couple of the kids who will be using this have occasional accidents and this will help protect the furniture in their classroom.)
The Shield is also perfect for a blanket you plan to use for picnics.  Use for indoor picnics to protect your carpet or for outdoor picnics to make sure damp grass doesn’t soak through and make damp bottoms.
The kids had a fun time trying out it’s extra comfy softness before Polly delivered it.


And one of the best parts is that it can fold up into a pillow when not in use!
Or, you can tuck an 18″ pillow insert  into the pocket to have a soft pillow while you’re curled up in the blanket.
