Did you know that you could put yourbaby’s pictures, or your family pictures, or your wedding pictures, or your pets pictures, (the list is unlimited) that you would like to MAKE INTO AN HEIRLOOM, in a quilt? It’s another wonderful way to keep your memories alive! I’m not talking about printing them on with an ink jet printer either.
I’m talking about Sublimation!
Sublimation is the process by which an image printed on paper is transferred to another surface (here it’s fabric)! Sublimation is the passage of dye (ink) directly from a solid to a vaporized state through the action of heat and pressure causing them to bond with the fibers of synthetic materials such as polyester. Sublimation allows for more creative designs than screen printing or cut and sew methods. Colors are permanently impregnated into the fabric (NOT JUST PRINTED ON) so they will not stiffen, crack, fade, or wash out, with proper care.
Our sublimation fabric for quilting, although it is polyester, IT FEELS AND LOOKS LIKE COTTON! I guarantee you will love the hand on the blocks made from our printable quilting fabric.
Do you want to see your baby’s pictures in your very own heirloom quilt? Contact us and we can help you make this happen!
DID YOU KNOW?
That women sewing received HONORABLE MENTION in the Old Testament? Starting with the 10th verse, chapter 31 of Proverbs, King Lemuel tolls the characteristics of a virtuous woman.
My Bible Quote for this post: Proverbs 31:22 “She maketh herself coverings of tapestry; her clothingis silk and purple. KJV
