Why Should You Choose Photo Quilt Blocks for Your Printing Service

With so many printing services out there to choose from, why should you choose Photo Quilt Blocks?

Photo Quilt Blocks was started by Lori McCroskey. Lori has been in the business of sublimation printing for five years marketing t-shirts, mugs, and hand crafted items at craft fairs, in an Etsy store, and at a little boutique in Ozark, Missouri called Little Bluebird Vintage Boutique. One day, Lori said to herself, “Why am I trying to guess what everyone wants printed when I should be printing for MY PEOPLE?” From there the idea was born!

Lori started looking for a web designer that had an interface that could be set up just for quilters. With all the seam allowances and subtleties that only sewists and quilters know, she launched what she feels like will be a huge service to the quilting community. While sewists and quilters typically want to DIY everything, there is a large population that just wants to enjoy the art of creating a photo quilt, gift, or project without the expense and learning curve of printing photos on fabric themselves.

Here is how it looks when you are ordering one photo block:

Lastly, Lori found in her research that there was a big hole for inspiration and creativity in the Photo Quilt Market. Her goal is to think outside of the box and create a whole new inspirational category of photo quilts, photo gifts that are sewn, and scrapbooking with fabric. So make sure to follow Photo Quilt Blocks on social media to be a part of this ground breaking creative journey!


Lori McCroskey is the principal creator of, a website dedicated to quilts, projects, and gifts created with photos printed on fabric. She also has a business where you can have her print your photos on fabric for you! Inspired by her love for sewing, scrapbooking, and family, Lori has a passion for capturing memories in useable gifts, quilts, and crafts that get your photos off your phone, out of the album, freed from a frame, and into memorable keepsakes that your friends and family will treasure.
