    Bomber Nose art Quilt top

    well its been a little while since I posted and done any sewing but my Hubby asked for this quilt he printed out all the images and picked out most of the fabric. I will be quilting it with some stars and swirls in the next day or two.

    The quilt is spectacular. Do mind sharing the technique used for printing on fabric? Making I'm thinking about making a quilt for my mother with photos of all the grandkids, and would love some advice!

    I agree... I'm sure your husband is delighted with your accomplishment and quilting talent. It will be a conversation piece for sure.
    attitude is everything...the rest will fall into place.

    Very nice, and it's great that it was a "together" project.

    Love the bomber art - unique and such a unique quilt. Well done, both of you.

    We printed off the images on printable cotton sheets on a ink jet printer that had a photo quality ink. I get them from Amazon and I got some from EQ web site they had a sale. we made sure the sizes of the images were pretty close to each other,

    very artistic quilt. your dh did well picking out the fabrics
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Amazing!! I would love to know how this is done also. Very cool idea. I'm thinking there is special fabric that you can print on, but wonder about ink. This will look cool. I would love to see pics when finished wth quilting. .
