    I am making a memory quilt. The picture I took I printed out on fabric sheets for ink jet printer. You can see thru them and I need to know how to use a stablizer to make the picture stiffer when working with them. Any thoughts?

    I have no clue myself as I have never made one but someday hope to. I am sure that someone will come along real soon and tell you what to do. :) Good Luck.

    I would choose a light weight iron on interfacing. It will stay nice and soft and give the fabric a bit more substance :D:D:D

    Mulqueens is an awesome place to buy fabric. They do have some very helpful salespeople there too!! They will know exactly what to prescribe for you.
