I have now written up a bit more information on the blocks for sophie’s quilt and am happy if anyone wants to download it.  (this is for the 99″ x 99″ quilt… which is big) The other posts on this can be found here BFG Sophie’s quilt and BFG inspired Sophie’s Quilt II. I love that one reader has already made a version and found my workings useful – Susan’s quilt is absolutely beautiful and you can have a look here, fantastic work!

Print on Fabric using your home printer tutorial

Print on Fabric using your home printer tutorial

Catrin (what a great name!) asked me about the paper I used to make print on fabric so I thought I’d show you how I did it.
The paper was bought from Ebay, and it’s transfer paper for inkjet printers. You can use it for T shirt printong too.

You create your design in your word processor and then, here’s the crucial part, print in MIRROR IMAGE. It’s one of the advanced printer settings you can choose.
Don’t forget to switch that feature off when you are finished!

Then iron onto your fabric and peel back the backing paper. This is one of the other designs I tried out for Catherine’s nametag. I also printed lots of small labels with my name on, and have ironed those onto the cotton webbing that you see in the pic. Those are my little quilt labels. I also used them for tags on pouches I made for the teachers last Christmas. How easy is that?
