While we would follow the manufacturer instructions for setting the ink, there were potential problems that we could not control. According to the instructions, you 'should' be able to include the photo in your quilt and launder it with same results as a traditionally pieced quilt. We had one gal that repeatedly printed the color pictures on her fancy laser printer at work. Problem was that it HAS to be an inkjet printer and not a laser printer. We couldn't convince her of that. The photos she printed and sent in literally faded from the squares about two weeks after the quilt was quilted and completed. Again, not good.
What we have found, is that most t-shirt quilt owners throw their quilt into the laundry using harsh soaps. Not surprisingly, that even though we followed the manufacturer instructions, we found that the images are fading much faster than expected. So, we changed how we do things. We no longer print the photos on fabric, and have decided to let the experts take care of this aspect of the process.
