After many hours of preparing our guild's logo in color and saving it to a JPG file, I transferred it to fabric (Moda snow) that had been prepared using Bubble Jet Set. I pretreated the fabric, ironed it to the freezer paper sheets and put it through my HP printer. Looked great. Set the colors with an iron, peeled off the freezer paper and used the post-printing solution that is part of the Bubble Jet package. The ink bled badly. arrrrrgh.
i have followed this same method many times before (successfully).
Any idea what went wrong? This is the same technique I use for photo quilts and labels...
Is it possible the chemicals had deteriorated with time?
Can anyone recommend a brand of pretreated transfer sheets that are foolproof (and where the inks don't bleed or wash out)?
Btw, these logos were going to form the center block in four signature quilts that we are making for our guild members whose homes were badly damaged in Superstorm Sandy. All this planning...and now a major roadblock!
Thanks in advance for any suggestions...

The attached is an earlier version of the colored logo... The beach plums are actually a reddish purple color...lots of ink I guess, but even the green leaves bled.
