Memorial Quilt for Fred



I finished this a few days ago. I used Bubble Jet Set 2000 to print the photos on fabric. It was the first time I'd ever used it, and it worked great. I'm really pleased with the quality of the prints and with how soft the fabric is. This is journal quilt size (8 1/2" X 11"), although most journal quilts seem to be vertical and this is horizontal.

And to answer a question I was asked, I stitched the lettering with my embroidery machine.

A lovely tribute! Is your lettering stitched or appliqued?

Cheryl, your quilt is such a wonderful tribute to a loved family member. I've been wanting to try some of the Bubble Jet Set for some fabric art but haven't done so. Glad you liked it. Now I'll feel more comfortable trying it.
