Making Fabric Memories

October 2005
Quilter's World;Oct2005, Vol. 27 Issue 5, p48
This article offers a step-by-step instruction on making fabric memories by incorporating favorite photographs or artwork in quilts. If using photos to make your fabric memory, you may start with a digital photograph or a printed photograph. If scanning images, scan at 200 dots per inch or higher. The higher the resolution, the better the image will be when printed on fabric. All you need to create your own fabric sheets is freezer paper, fabric, ink fixative, such as Bubble Jet Set 2000 and some basic tools, such as scissors and an iron. Freezer paper, adhesive labels or other stabilizers may be used to provide a stiffness to the fabric that will allow it to flow through the printer successfully.
