Everyone who was interested in the mailing label fabric backing for printing: I did pretreat the fabric first with Bubble Jet Set (available at JoAnn's) used according to directions. I increased the saturation of the image on Photoshop by about 50% to compensate for the way the fabric soaks up ink. I think I may have overdone the brightening a bit.

Here are the two postcards made by quilting and embroidering the images. The butterfly weed image is the same one I used before. It's neat to be able to recreate something so easily. No butterfly this time though.

The piece with the butterfly weed and Debra's butterfly as well as another one of mine are up for auction in September. There are some lovely little quilts this time. Go visit the Alzheimer's Quilt Auction site, admire, and bid if you can.

Still looks great. Aren't you glad we live in a time when we can do multiple copies of the same pattern? Even though I love hand work and the uniqueness of each piece, sometimes it's nice to just get the same result every time!

Why don't you print up a page of butterflies that you can fuse to your pieces? (or I can embroider some butterflies for you to have on hand)
