Last weekend I treated 2 yards of fabric for printing photos.
Directions said to iron the fabric to freezer paper. I even bought new freezer paper for maximum stickiness. Trim it to size and run it through the printer.
Not sticky enough. That won't work.
Another source said to use clear packaging tape and tape your fabric to paper. I decided to use cardstock for a little extra weight. Trimmed the fabric about 1/4" smaller all around and taped it down.
Now let's try two photos on one page.
What's that computer? Halfway through photo two you no longer HAVE a printer?
Okay, okay, so I can't do ANYTHING else while printing photos. Anything that involves the computer, that is.
The next page came out nicely. And then I quit because it was bedtime. And because I don't enjoy taping fabric to paper.
But...I think I've got it figured out.
Only something like 38 more photos to go...
Today I went to a local, free quilt show. It was also a sew-in for the group putting on the show, so I chatted with a member. I think I'll be joining their group. I didn't feel comfortable taking photos, so nothing to show, but there was a very wide variety of styles and abilities represented, so that makes me feel good.
And then, since it's so nice out (I think we missed spring?), I decided to photograph a few quilt tops that need it. The first one went well and then Mother Nature decided to get windy...
By the time I was done, I had to fight my way out of quilts that had wrapped themselves around me as I unpinned them from the clothesline, but I'll be adding them to the "parade of tops" page shortly because they're better than what's on there now.
Now...what to do...it's so beautiful outside, I feel like I should be out there, but I've got a pile of projects I want to work on inside, too...what to do, what to do!
Happy National Quilting Day!
