We strive to have your custom quilt done as quickly as possible and can quote you a time frame, based on the current demand. If you need your quilt by a certain time, please make sure to let us know so we can do our best to get it to you! We do offer a rush fee which will expedite your quilt. Please be aware, the holiday season usually brings a longer turn around time.
