Unhappy Photo Quilt

This was a gift for a friend who is a professional photographer. It highlights his work. Took some searching to find what I wanted for a label; am happy with the result.

I love it! what kind of process was used for the photos? I tried a cotton sheet that you use in a inkjet printer but the first time it was washed it started ti peel off.....

I used the packaged June Tailor "Sew-In Colorfast Fabric Sheets for Ink Jet Printers". I had used this type fabric sheet on another project and thought they were a bit thin. The ones I used on this project were stiffer (not at all cuddly). All in all I prefer the "heft" of these to the flimsiness of the others. They worked well in the printer. I gave a printed sheet a test wash (by hand, not in the machine) and didn't notice any loss of color. I'm happy with this product.
