    What a nice thing to do for your friends. Isn't it wonderful to have friends who mean so much to you?

    That's really nice! Of course, me being from the San Francisco Bay Area, I'll bet you can guess which panel is my favorite! (Hint it's 'Golden')

    the pictures are my friends in NC. they sent me a ton and i made choices of what i wanted to use. i used fabric and printed them on the printer.. (there is a process you go thru to make the pictures last and not fade).
    if you are interested just let me know and i can give you names of products that i used...

    Thanks Colleen
    I have made some pillows with pictures I printed on fabric. About 7 years ago my sister, her DH, me and myDH all took a trip and at one place we visited a wildflower farm. Got some great pictures and for Christmas that year I made her some pillows using the pictures. They are still holding the color so was very pleased with the result. I will be trying the quilt--that a great idea.

    That is a wonderful quilt. I'm sure that your friends loved it. I might have to do one of those for myself. Thanks for sharing.

    I would love to have the names of materials and way you printed the pictures. My husband and I have traveled to quite a few countries and a picture from each would be a treasured memory. Thanks much. Wanda (fish)

    HI THERE,, SORRY TO BE DRAGGING MY FEET....
    I USED THE BUBBLE JET SET 2000 AND THE BUBBLE JET RINSE. I USED A WHITE( CREMES ALSO) 100% COTTON AND THE PAPER THAT YOU IRON THE 100% COTTON ON TO MAKE IT GO THRU THE PRINTER..
    ITS A MATTER OF SOAKING YOUR MATERIAL IN THE FIRST SOLUTION AND LAYING IT OUT TO DRY...
    IRON ON PAPER FOR PRINTER
    PUT IT IN THE PRINTER LIKE ANY OTHER PAPER AND COPY
    LET DRY AND USE THE BUBBLE JET RINSE TO SET YOUR COLORS IN AND LET THAT DRY.

    YOU ARE READY TO DO WHATEVER YOU WANT WITH YOUR PICTURES.. IF YOU TYPE IN BUBBLE JET 2000 IT WILL GIVE YOU INFORMATION AND THERE ARE LOTS OF SITES TO ORDER FROM IF YOU CANNOT FIND IT NEAR YOUR HOME.
