    I was figuring I may be able to get 3 photos per page. Because I am going to cut the pics out or should I say attach fabric right up to the pic. And the pics would be probably 5x7s.

    Might I suggest that you don't print the photos too large? You will want to quilt around them and not through them--faces look terrible with stitching acroos them--like Frankenstein! And if the photoes are 8 x 10, and you quilt around them, they look sort of saggy. I have better luck printing two 5 x 7 photoes or four 3 x 4" photos to one sheet of Printed Treasure.

    I also use June Tailor and don't find it stiff...I buy the 100% cotton dry clean only ones...I also heard if you use reg fabric you can use Fix it spray that artist use over their oil paintings versus bubble jet...cheaper and same effect I know you can buy it at Michael's
