Instead of a book, your guests can sign in and leave you a message on a functional, cozy, keepsake quilt, with natural ingredients, handmade in America.
This option features a larger center block with your name or preferred message. All other squares are smaller.

Fabrics are completely customizable by you. Choose fabrics from any you see in my shop or browse for fabrics at Meander + Make. Leave me a note in the box with your choices (names will suffice). Please choose 10 different fabrics. If you need help choosing your fabrics, please purchase your quilt and then message me for help.

I will not create the message block until you approve. PLEASE NOTE that your message block will be the exact same size as all other blocks in your quilt.
Your guest book quilt comes with 2 fabric markers, if you need additional markers you can find them here.

Please do not:
alter these blocks in any way except writing on them with a fabric marker
paint on them
spray a substance to the back of them
iron on to them
sew on them
embroider on them
glue items on to them
If the blocks have been altered I will charge a fee for having to work around this of $25. I am very sorry about this, but I've had someone do each of these things above and it just creates stress and mistakes that cannot be helped.

IF YOU HAVE PURCHASED A GUEST BOOK QUILT and never returned your quilt squares for me to complete your quilt I will give you up to three years to do so. After three years, I will not complete the order nor refund and will consider the order completed.

- It is your responsibilty to return all blocks once they've been signed by your guest. If there are blocks missing, then you will have to purchase additional blocks.
- I need at least a half inch border all around each block for sewing purposes. If guest sign in border then some of their words may or may not be cut off.
- Make sure your guests are signing blocks correctly. If blocks are turned upside down or inside out there is nothing I can do to fix that. I will still used them.
- It is your responsibility to be sure that guests are signing with a FABRIC marker. Occasionally, they will use their own pens (something hard to control). Please note that anything other than a fabric marker will smudge. Fabric markers DO NOT smudge after being washed.

I wrote a post on the easiest way to choose fabrics for your custom quilt here.
Also, if you prefer to send me the link to your public pinterest board of your fabric choices instead of listing them at checkout that would be perfect, and easier for both of us.
