    Hi, I am sorry I can't help you but I am interested in watching this thread as I want to do the same thing. I am sure there are quilters here who can give step by step instructions.

    Sorry that you feel like your posts get few responses. I know I have all kinds of responses, some with none, a few or a lot. :) But, I post a lot of topics... so, maybe that is why I have a few with a lot of responses. I hope you dont think you are wanted or welcomed here, because that would be the farthest thing from the truth!

    Okay, this is what I do. It is easier if you have a scanner/
    printer. You can buy these already made up sheets of
    material attached to paper, the size of typing paper and
    put the picture under the scanner with the material
    paper in the printer and press print. Or, you can make
    your own material printing paper by cutting the material
    of your choice the size of typing paper, spray baste the
    paper and carefully add the material to it and do the
    same things as previously mentioned. also you can
    print from your computer program if you do not have
    a scanner. I have done this both ways and it works.
    Hope this is not confusing to you and it is what you needed.

    Hi... I found this on You tube....it is for making quilt labels but I don't see why you couldn't use it for a photo....have no idea if it works or not....and you do have to be careful that the paper doesn't get stuck in the printer ....but maybe worth a go......Good luck with it.

    I was searching for a specific quilt I had seen, so emailed a possible quilter to see if it was hers (it wasn't), but she suggested someone else. When looking at that designers site, I found she has a video that tells how to convert a photo. http://www.lura-art.com/store_video.php

    wow I didn't know there were so many different tech. to do a quilt/wall hanging from a pic. Some one asked what it was I wanted. I wanted to recreat the pic in Fabric and possible some embrodery. I don't know anything about doing it in thread or string and I don't know any artist that do it. I only know I've seen it done here on the board. The scanning I wanted to do was so I could show you all here on the board the pic not scan it onto fabric although that would be an option that would make it like a memory quilt. My Idea was I wanted to make it a piece of Fabric Art using different shades and colors to accoplish it.
    I've read through the tut. that were for the graduation pic and I don't understand how to get it accomplished. Your Tut is clear and great my brain just doesn't wrap around it.
    At the moment my computer isn't reconsizing my scanner so i can scan it in to show you the pic. I hope maybe I answered some of your questions. I'm not new to quiltling but I am new to all the tech. aspects and correct terms. I basicly came up with an idea and went at it.

    If you want to do applique, "Portraits for Fabric Lovers" by Marilyn Belford is a good place to start.
    With her method, you will need access to some type of photo editing software. I believe Photoshop offers a free 30 day trial online to do your editing.
    I use a different method than what she does, but I don't have my book published yet. I'm still writing it. :)
    Good luck!
