SCROLL TO BOTTOM FOR MORE PHOTOS Grandby's Quilts specializes in one- of- a- kind, personalized, heirloom quality, PHOTO QUILTS from your own 5"x7" or 4"x 6" photos OR artwork. Note: 8' x 10" photos aren't recommended. Anything larger than a California King, or special pattern requested, will constitute Custom Quilting rate at $20 per hour rate, with a 20 hour minimum, rather than using the chart below.
* Original photos will be returned unharmed. You may send your photos in jpg format on a disc or e-mail photos directly to us also in .jpg format. Please let us do the cropping where necessary since not all photo editing programs are alike. Photos should be the same size and orientated the same directions for best results. Good contrast in the photos make the best quilt reproductions.
*If you are sending color photos, but you want all black and white or sepia, please designate those instructions in the letter you include with your photos. If you want the quilt to be colorful send 1.5 yards each of at least 3 different fabric colors to use in the quilt for up to a Full size quilt or 2 yards each of at least 3 or more different fabric colors for a Queen size quilt and up.
* Number your photos on the back, in the order of importance, beginning with #1. We like to put the #1 photo in the center ( the heart of the quilt) when possible.
* Include in the box: Your letter of request telling us a size. A $200 deposit. Your email address and daytime phone number. The fabric you have purchased Your numbered photos. Mail, insured, to 10207 Sommers Road, San Antonio, TX 78217
