I know we have talked about this, but I am going to ask again. I am in the process of designing a king sized quilt for my DIL and want to incorporate some southwestern images that will be printed out on the fabric itself. I know there is special fabric, but I am going to use batiks in this quilt and while I do want the design to show, I want it to be very subtle and if I use the special fabric, it might show up moe than I want. So if I do just use regualr fabric, what steps are necessary to ensure that the image won't wash out the first time this thing is laundered?
I am long winded for a simple question--sorry about that :!: :D
