    Are these actually crayons or are they markers? This is a very interesting concept that I would like to try. I've always had trouble seeing my markings especially on quilts with busily patterned fabrics like the one I am now quilting. However, the backing of the quilt is muslin, and so I am quilting on the backside of the quilt just so I can see my markings. I am using a Sewline Ceramic pen in turquoise.
    They are markers. They're inexpensive and I've always been able to find a color that showed up on any fabric. Sometimes on a large quilt I use more than one color and they get very colorful, but it's quick, easy and cheap

    I have a Bernina with the stitch regulator attachment and they warned us that it would not work with the powder. It interferes with the reading of the stitches. Besides, I found it messy!

    I just use the white and gray quilting pencils and they do just fine for me. I don't think I care for the mess the powder that the pounce would probably make. Mary

    Wow, six of one half a dozen of the other. Not sure if I want to try one or stick to a #3 pencil which are hard to find. #2 pencils are what is sold in most stores and is a softer lead which does smear much easier.
    We were alsways required in grade school to use a #3 and that what my Grams' ladies quilting group used to mark their quilts. Think I will stick to that.
    Thanks for all teh tips though, I will keep them in mind.

    Doesn't ironing after quilting flatten the quilt?
