Does anyone know how printing on fabric from a personal computer and printer (regular cannon) wears over time and how the fabric behaves in a quilt? Which printable fabric packets would you recommend, sheer cotton more like canvas?
Thanks

I haven't used it myself, but from what I've heard, the results aren't good - sometimes it seems to only last a few months under decently heavy use. However, I've also heard that using good heat setting techniques helps. Really, it seems that printable fabric was designed more for decorative use.

That being said, I *have* heard good things about designing layouts using your own photos and spoonflower, essentially creating a cut-apart panel. That seems to last longer, at least according to people I know who've used it.
