Ok so this project isn't technically done yet, but the iron on is.  I'm making a quilt for my best friend for her bridal shower.  She's not getting married until August but since quilts take a bit & I want to take the top to a longarm class, I figured I'd get a head start.  So I used this tute:

http://www.modabakeshop.com/2010/02/off-grid-sliced-nine-patch-quilt.html

And I used the Millhouse Inn line from Moda.  I've just put together the squares...



And I found this great iron on stuff that is meant to go on dark fabric and added my friend's pic:

 It turned out really great, IMHO!  I didn't want to use the quilt fabric you can print in your inkjet because it isn't water fast!  What's the point of a quilt you can't wash?  Plus I could iron directly on to the fabric in my quilt, rather than having a white square.  And the other iron on transfer sheets are stiffer, so I'm really happy with this.  Now I just need to finish the quilt!  Smiley

This is lovely though The pattern is so awesome.

Send me any image you need printed on laser color. Don't mind a bit.

I also reverse and use goof off to transfer and it stays a lot longer. I'll link a post soon as soon as my partner receives. Love using computers and fabric together.

I don't have quite the patience to do such a large quilt though. That color combo is so pleasing to the eye.
