    I have made several using the "iron on transfer" method. So far, the people I have made them for haven't complained that the photos have worn off or anything. But then again, they are not the kind to drag around. These hang on walls or lay on back of couch.
    What I did was make my blocks with the sashing first - basically made the whole top. I used Quilter's cotton for the part where I wanted to put pic. Then I ironed on the pics. (don't forget to reverse them when printing on the transfer paper)

    I used a good quality cotton, Bubble Jet Set, and freezer paper and print them off my computer. It's really easy. I've done it several times with good results.

    Yes I'd like the pictures bigger than the 3 or 4 in regular photos if that would work. Would u be able to wash the quilt???

    i've never done it, but those that have say it's pretty washable. since you're printing off your computer, you can enlarge from your photo program, then print on fabric with the bubble jet stuff.

    the pics could be the entire size of a printer page.
