    Hi Margo!

    Here is a link that will show you many different products you can use to get the picture onto the fabric and be able to wash them. Good luck on your quilt.

    June tailor also makes a printer fabric sheet . You put it in your printer and print the picture. wet it, let dry and sew it into your porject. I have found it at walmart. and Joann fabric. It is colorfast so you can wash it. They also have one that you can't wash.

    Yes, silly me, I had to learn the hard way. I bought some of the June Tailor fabric sheets. I was in a hurry and instead of stopping and actually reading it thoroughly, bought them. THen, I realized they were only to be drycleaned. So, I need to get some of the washable fabric sheets. lol.
