    I thought I would put all 3 of these together, since I finally finished the 3rd quilt top. The red one was given to my son for his birthday. The other two are Christmas presents for my stepsons. The brown one, has lions, tigers and leopards on the border, & also the back, and is at the quilter's. I think I will put the palm trees on the back of the blue one. I'm not ready to do the quilting on a large quilt myself, yet, so it needs a trip to the quilter's also. It only takes me about two days for binding, so I'm good to go! :D

    Thank you for all your nice comments! As to the washing? Well, I guess only time will tell. I used Printed Treasures fabric paper, as it was recommended to me. It "says" superior washability on the package. It was very easy to work with, once I figured out how to get the backing off. It says to wait a minute and just peel! Yeah, right... you have to iron the back, or else it peels in little bitty strips. :shock: I washed the first quilt before I gave it to my son and it looked great. But that was one washing :roll: I also washed it with color catcher, in cold water, so it wouldn't get any bleed from the red and black fabrics. Oh, and yes, done with an inkjet printer.
