Quilt Information-

The cost of the quilt will depend on the size and detail of the design.  The Participation Quilt is usually a grid-block style, using blocks that are at least 8” square. Circle of Friends Quilting  will discuss size, approximate number of blocks and design style with the customer.  A price will be quoted and if agreed upon, the customer will receive a ‘Participation Quilt Guidelines’ sheet to copy and send to all participants along with the fabric blocks.  The guidelines sheet  explains how the block is to be done, offers design suggestions and lets the participant know when all the blocks must be returned. 

When all the blocks are collected, the quilt will be constructed using customers choice of fabric colors/prints.  The customer is always welcome to provide their own fabrics.  Please inquire for yardages needed, a price adjustment may be made.  The quilt may also be personalized with  embroidered designs and/or wording.  This will all be discussed when the quilt is ordered.  Special requests and suggestions are always welcome.  Circle of Friends Quilting will always try to honor your requests whenever possible!


Quilt Block Fabric-

The fabric used must be 100% cotton fabric with a higher thread count (200 +).  This is a better quality cotton that washes well and accepts the photo transfers easily.  The fabric should be white or a light cream (whichever will work best with the quilt border fabric colors).  The fabric should  not be pre-washed.  The quilt participants will be asked to use only embellishments/materials that can be permanently adhered to the quilt and use only permanent fabric pens, markers and/or paints.  A contact number will be on the guidelines sheet and the block participants are encouraged to email or call directly if they have any questions concerning the quilt. 

 This type of quilt is a bit more involved and requires more of your time certainly.  However, it is the most personal of gifts and one that will be cherished forever!

Don’t hesitate to email with any questions or concerns you may have.  Phone: 586-264-1937
