Thanks very much for the link. I really appreciate it. Looks like something I need to add to my hospice collection.

I've sewn some but don't have the patience to knit something so big. I know how I would do it if I did have the patience... I just know that if I go buy materials for it I'll get about 6 inches in and get bored and never finish.

Try looking for a pillow afghan or pillowghan if you aren't finding anything for a quillow.

A pillowghan/pillow afghan/quillow is an afghan that can be folded into a pillow. Most of the patterns that I've seen for one have been crocheted using squares.

Here are a few links for some if anyone wants to take a look but I think you can make/use any square whether it's knitted or crocheted to make a quillow/pillowghan since the basic idea would be the same:
Pillowghan General Instructions by Priscilla Hewitt (crocheted sqs.)

Bond Machine Knitting - Pillowghan Patterns

Popcorn Pillowghan Square Designed by Julie A. Bolduc

I know I've recently seen some cute knitted dishcloth patterns that I think would be perfect for making as squares for an afghan or a pillowghan/quillow.

HTH!
