Are the Photo Quilts Machine Washable and Dryable?

  • Your photo quilt IS machine washable and dryable!

  • Use cold water, gentle cycle, and mild detergent. Tumble dry on low or medium heat (no commercial dryers). They may also be ironed on a polyester setting. Do not dry clean or hang in the sun to dry.

  • I have not had a problem with fading through several washings. However, I am not responsible for fading blocks on your quilt due to the composition of your water, or your choice of detergent/washing methods.  Direct sunlight WILL fade the photos and other fabric on your quilt over time!

How long does it take to get my Doodle's Custom Photo Quilt?

  • 4-6 weeks is the normal turnaround time to complete and return your quilt after we receive the order. Please email to find out our current workload.
  • A RUSH ORDER FEE will be charged to any order that needs to be completed and returned in less than 4 weeks after the photos arrive. Please contact us BEFORE you place your order to make sure your quilt can be completed within your timeframe.

What size photos do I need to send?

  • Any size up to 8x10 will work. Wallets will work, but we'd rather have 3x5 inch photos as the minimum to make sure we can make a high quality print. The bigger the picture, the better the resolution will be.
  • Copyrighted photos must be accompanied by written permission from the photographer to use them in a quilt. Please don't send copyrighted photos without it--we won't break the law for you.

How good of quality must the photos be?

  • High quality photos will result in high quality reproductions. We can lighten pictures and crop them, but we cannot improve the focus or make them better.

How large are the photos on my quilt?

  • All quilts will contain blocks with bordered 5x7 photo panels.
  • 8x10 inch photo panels can be substituted for every 2-5x7 panels.

Can I use black and white photos?

  • Any photos can be reproduced. We can also change your color photos to black & white or sepia (brown) if you'd rather have them that way in your quilt.

Can I use my own fabric for my quilt or different fabric than the standard choices?

  • The selections on the order form are to help make things easier. If you want a different choice, contact us to work out your plan.
  • If you have your own favorite fabric, we will gladly use it and return any extra with your quilt. You may also subtract 10% off of the price.
    • Contact us to discuss how much fabric will be needed for the size quilt that you'd like to order. It's very important to have enough!
    • Please wash, dry, and press your fabric before sending it.
