    You need an digital version of the picture and a color printer. Then open the picture in a software program (I use Powerpoint or Word). I use June Tailor or Electric Quilt fabric sheets. You can buy them online or the June Tailor sheets can be purchased at JoAnn's or other quilt shops. You feed the fabric sheets through your color inkjet printer and it prints the picture right on the fabric. Then follow the instructions for setting the ink. I prefer the EQ fabric sheets because they are a little softer and more pliable after printing. Both work well and have great visual quality.

    The first thought in my head was "Oh my goodness, so young." This is a beautiful tribute to a life lost way too early.

    Bless you for your thoughtfulness. Since you knew them, it must have been hard for you. It turned out beautifully & I know they will treasure it forever.
    My oldest is just 1 year older than Tyler would be. I don't know how I would part with him so soon; & pray I will never know that pain. Please send my kindest sympathies to the family. SO very sad.
