Quilt #46 - Photo quilt

Yesterday, I finished quilting this photo quilt for Jen.

I did a small stipple with white or off white So Fine in the top and a light yellow Bottom Line in the bobbin which blended so well with the backing.



I did avoid the pictures while quilting.


I have a box and I need to pack it up and ship it out. :)

Looks great! Would love to know how she did her photos and if they are washable!

For Regina:
I used June Tailor Colorfast - White sew in printer fabric. Using my printer at home, printed the pictures and heat set with a dry iron. I then did a light rinse in cold water, dried and heat set again. According to the directions, that makes the pictures colorfast. Washable? I'm not sure yet. If I were to wash it, I would do it in a gentle cycle with Woolite or something like that.

I had no issues printing the pics on my home printer. They were clearer than I expected. I was pleased with those results.
