With the hope of more Bible coloring pages for our Bible Quilts blog running through my mind, I was thrilled to stumble across quilter Margie Campbell post today. She was sharing instructions with a quilting group on LinkedIn about how to create fabric printer sheets that can be passed through a computer printer to make quilt block pictures.
I can think of several ways this technique could be useful in making Bible quilts.
- You can print coloring pages instead of tracing them for the children to color.
- You can scan the pictures children color on paper coloring pages. Then print their artwork directly on the fabric, color and all.
- You can find Bible pictures and print them on the fabric. You may have some copyright issues to deal with if you go this route.
Margie offered to share her blog post which explains how she makes her own printer fabric using cotton fabric, freezer paper, and two liquids – Bubble Jet Set 2000 and Bubble Jet Set Rinse. Click here to read her blog post.
A big thank you to Margie for sharing this information with us.
