Being on a short deadline and having a fairly large project - twenty pieces to print, piece and ultimately quilt - I grabbed my keys, my charge card and headed out to my Local Quilt Store. My local quilt store does not have my product of choice, but they do have a printable fabric product comprised of pre-cut standard sheets that bear the name of a popular professional quilter.
For you, I will wax poetic about my favourite product - Blumenthal Lansing's Crafter's Images PhotoFabric.
Personally, I buy it in the 12' roll, but it's also available in precuts. This product comes in cotton poplin, cotton twill and cotton/silk blends. The poplin is sturdy, washable once set and - wonder of wonders - doesn't fray in the course of basic handling. Did I mention it's sturdy - with a tight, smooth even weave?

This is what I use when I print handkerchiefs for soldiers in forward units, for printing photos in quilts, for printing kids' art onto panels for a throw cushion for Grandma. This is also, now, my forever product - my shopping list includes multiple rolls so I will never find myself in the position of rushing out to settle for an inferior product again.
