    Can anyone send me in the right direction

    I am making a signature quilt for me nephew for there wedding. I have seen where people have turn a photo into a quilt. I think it would be so cool to include a picture of Ryan and Jenn on the quilt top.

    It would have to be a easy one because I've never done it before. any ideas ?? Where would I find directions on how to even do it.
    Thanks ladies

    Hi Debbie,
    All you need is some photo printing fabric, available at most fabric stores or your local quilt shop, a good home printer, and lots of patience. There are very clear directions with the photo paper so you shouldn't have any problems.

    There are washable ones and non washable so be sure to get the ones that will wash. I got the wrong ones once and when I washed it there was no picture. Learned from my mistake.

    You can use a normal injet printer or a photo printer -- you don't print in photo mode but in the best print mode. Printed Treasures is a great fabric for printing because the fabric has a good hand. I have not used the EQ fabric, but some folks I know swear by it. Be sure and follow the directions -- some of the fabric is to be rinsed first then you can iron it as usual and some fabric needs to be heat set, then rinsed then ironed again. I have done a number of quilts and labels with printed pictures going back 10 years (when all I could get was the June Taylor stuff) and they do hold the color well.

    I have used the EQ printable fabric with good results. There is also a product called Bubble Jet Set to make your own fabric.
    The biggest risk is the one not taken

    I made this quilt with the EQ printable papers. Very easy to use. I think the Printed Treasures is more available in shops. I got the EQ papers somewhere off the internet.

    So many quilts, so little time.
