Inkjet Fabric Sheets

In the past few weeks I have made several quilts using photos printed on fabric. I haven't had much luck with preparing my own fabric and ironing it onto freezer paper and then running it through my inkjet printer. Seems to always hang up a bit at the beginning, making a big mess.

I have used Printed Treasures quite a bit and have been happy with them. It seems that the images are not quite as bright as they appear on my screen or even printed on paper. But I have been satisfied with them.

While visiting Rossville Quilts they recommended and I purchased a package of EQ Printable Fabric Sheets.

The Camaro quilt photos were printed on both Printed Treasures and EQ fabric. The difference in quality is plain to see and I will be using the EQ sheets for future photo quilts. Can you tell which one is which?

Ruthie, I really can see the difference. You ca eve see the reflection off the hood on the one on the left. The one on the right just looks flat and lacluster. I'm going to have to find some of this stuff. Thanks for the tip.
