    Using Pictures in Quilts

    I have seen the special papers to use for Photos. Just wonder if anyone use this for pictures in their quilts? Curios how it stands in everyday use and laundry or its best to use like wall hanging?

    Do you mean fabric rather than paper? Photos printed onto fabric will stand up well, provided the fabric has been properly treated.

    DD and I have made several photo memory quilts. I don't remember what pretreated fabric we used in the first one, but it RAN. We later found "Printed Treasures". I highly recommend it. The photos faded slightly in the first wash, but there was no discernible fading in subsequent washes. I use regular detergent in warm water, delicate cycle like I do in all my quilts and dried on medium heat in the dryer.
