    dream line quilt backing

    This is the pre printed backing from Benartex that you quilt and then the lines wash out when you wash it. I bought some of this awhile back and am just getting around to using it. Does anyone know if you can iron the fabric before you quilt it? I am afraid that ironing the fabric will set the ink and then it won't wash out properly. Anyone have experience with this?

    here's a link to the fabric http://www.fabric.com/ProductDetail....0-9add6adea2b1 and there's no info on ironing before washing
    here's a link to Benartex contact us page http://www.benartex.com/page/contact-us-83.htm . you might want to contact them to be certain of the answer. i searched their site and could not find the fabric on their site.
    it's definitely an interesting idea!

    I have a different one, don't remember the name, but it definitely said do not iron. If you don't need it all, you could just cut a small piece and try it to see what happens?
