I would like to respond to the person who inquired about using their printer
for creating quilt squares. You need a jet ink printer. Canon has Fabric
Sheets the # is FS-101. You can buy these sheets 10 sheets for about $
25.00. You could also do what I do. I cut bleached muslin sheeting to the
size of the paper, 81/2 "x ll"
and I cut freezer paper the same size. I iron the shinny side of the freezer
paper to the fabric piece. It will go through the printer without any
problem. I have a Color Style-Writer Pro. My printer will also print
backwards or I can set it to print the writing backwards to that when it
prints it will read perfect. The freezer paper can then be removed by
pulling it off very easily. The freezer paper can be used over and over with
the same method. Good Luck! Students love to see
their manipulated photographs printed into quilt squares. I also have them
enhance the squares with seed beads and embroidered stitches with metallic
threads and colored embroidery thread.
