    Hello,

    I'm looking for recommendations for a photo quilt. I made one in the past and used the brand of photo fabric sold at Joanns (can't remember the name) and after just one wash, the photos on the quilt started to fade. Needless to day, I don't want to use the same brand.

    Can any of you recommend a high quality photo fabric or tips for printing photos onto fabric.

    Thanks in advance.
    Michelle

    I really like EQ Printables. They have several different fabrics which are treated, all of them are very nice.

    A lot may depend on your printer and the inks too, not just the fabric sheets :D:D:D

    I use Printed Treasures, works great and so far no fading. I think I got mine at Staples. **

    Plus you have to set the printer ink. Be sure you read the instructions very carefully and follow them exactly. The ink should not fade after one washing.
