If you put the piping around the picture and then fold the edge under; you can stitch right next to the piping and it would give you a nice clean finish.

Thanks, Ritzy. I have to figure out how to affix the photo on fabric to the background. I was thinking I'd sew it around the edge and couch a cord over the stitching. Ricky showed how to inset a seam in the last issue of the 500 series. That would be hard for me especially to do a whole inset into a frame that goes around 360 degrees. Jan

Just about anything you like. If it frays a lot or if the texture is too light--just line it with a lightweight fusible interfacing.

I want to make a wall quilt with a photo I've printed onto premium cotton. I must admit I'd like if it were of a finer cloth. I want to put a silky border of green on it and I'm wondering if they have anything at Joann's in the clothing fabric that would quilt up nicely. Any advice?? Thanks, Jan
