it's late but at least i finished it.
it took forever to find inkjet fabric.
the patterned fabrics are vintage bed sheets.
i used 5/8 rick rack for the trim.
this my my first patchwork/quilting adventure so be kind.
inspired by the farmgirl photo pillow from "stitched in time" by alicia paulson <3

this is the original photo of me and my grandpa in the enchanted forest (1986):

The Enchanted Forest in Ellicott City, MD?
Is the print like an iron-on? Like.. sort of sticky? I wanted to put an image on a pillowcase so I ended up tracing it on with fabric markers so it wouldn't have that texture iron ons have. I wish I'd know there was fabric paper! Where did you end up finding it?
