When sent back the squares will be set into the quilt using the layout you decide on (or you can leave it to me) using the color/fabrics decided upon for the sashing (strips) and cornerstones (little squares). Choose your wedding or school colors, special activity print, etc. We will work out these details via email or let me know your preferences when placing your order.
Your quilt will be constructed using all cotton materials, including a premium batting and a solid color backing to coordinate with the front. Machine quilted along the seam lines so there isn't any stitching through your guests sentiments. The binding is custom made to match the outer sashing, is double thick, and hand sewn to the back side.
Squares will have the writing heat set to enhance colorfastness but this should be considered a showpiece rather than every day item. It may be washed on a gentle cycle in cold water and air dried but repeated washing will eventually fade the writing.
Lead time: Please allow a minimum of 2 weeks from placement of order to shipment of prepared squares. Lead time on finished quilt is approximately 4 week from receipt of returned squares. Please note this can vary based on current schedule.
