    This is the quilt I'm making for my daughter-in-law's 21st birthday, which is in a couple of weeks. Green is one of her favorite colors, and the colors in her living room.

    I had posted this earlier and a couple of you noticed (which I hadn't!) that I had a block with backwards pieces in it. I took it apart and fixed it! Thank you again! :D

    I want to make a label for it, letting her know that she's as loved as the many hours in the making of this for her. (haven't figured out the exact wording yet) Has anyone used 'Ink Jet T-shirt Transfer iron on sheets' to make labels with before? I've made a sheet with inspirationals sayings on it, for other projects, just haven't used them yet. Wondered how well it holds up to washings, etc. This is for her couch, and they have two big rowdy dogs too, so I'm guessing it will get plenty of washings.

    It turned out so pretty - it will be well loved. I can't help with the transfer sheets as I've just used some, but haven't been through the wash yet.

    Your twisting ribbon is very pretty. Your DIL will love it. I haven't used iron on transfer paper~

    Thank you Littlehud, Debbie1, and Alaskan Lady!!
    I'm guessing the transfer sheets will work. I just have to download another program to do the reverse lettering for it.
    Thanks again! :D

    I love your daughters quilt!!!! Wonderful Job!!!! :D :D :D As for the iron on sheets, I would print to fabric. My kids used the iron ons for different school events on teeshirts and they do not hold up as well as the printed on fabric did. I don't know if it was the 100% cotton teeshirt material being different from 100% cotton quilting material?? Just my opinion :wink:

    I have used both and haven't had any problems with them. But I also use Bubble Jet rinse on them before I put them on the the quilt. Let the ink dry, then rinse in cold water to make sure the ink has set, will do the same. I always let them dry out flat on a towel, when dry I press with a dry iron, iron on the back the quilt. For extra protection I usually blind stitch around the lable as well.

    Thank you everyone!!! :D
    Thanks Amma, for the input! I think I read on here about ironing freezer paper to material, to run it through the printer? I'll try to search for it again! :-)

    Okie3, Is that two different methods your talking about? You use Bubble Jet rinse with the transfer sheets and with print to cloth? Or can I just rinse either method in cold water to set the ink?
    Sorry for being dense, but I've never printed a label before. I've read a lot on here about doing them, but didn't retain much of it apparently. lol!!!
    Thanks! :-)

    Love the quilt! I even have the medium green print so you know I like the material :D
    I have not had good luck with printing the labels holding up under washings. If my label is all black with no color I go over it with fine point permanent marker. I have used the Bubble Jet Rinse and it helped somewhat but mine still faded. :(

    Thank you Sharon!!! :D I'm thinking now I might just embroider the wording for the label. I read up on all the posts about the bubble jet, and saved them in my computer. But I still have my whole case full of dmc floss from all my cross stitching, so that's free to use! :wink:
