Hi Jean, I used Printed Treasures Sew On inkjet printable fabric sheets. I printed a couple of pictures on the fabric sheets and followed all the instructions. Then washed them on delicate cycle/cold water BEFORE I sewed it into the quilt to make sure they wouldn't fade. They seemed to hold up pretty good. The pictures I used did not have a whole lot of color but I don't think they faded. I put the pictures in my DH's Saints quilt. I haven't used the iron on sheets but have seen a project where a friend used those. I prefer the sew-on because the iron-on had a shiny look on the fabric and you could see the edges of the paper. So far I haven't put the lap quilt through a wash cycle so not sure how it holds up long term. I would definitely do a practice run before sewing into your quilt. By the way, that's a great idea for a quilt!
