    Autograph Quilt

    I'm looking for a recommendation for the "best" pen to use for an autograph quilt. Does anyone have a preferred pen?
    Thanks

    We used fine tip permanent markers.

    Micron Pigma pens are archival, available in several colors and sizes, from very fine to larger. I prefer the very fine ones.

    I love gelly roll pens. They come in so many colors. They are really inexpensive. They are pigment ink and therefore permanent. Just do not use the sparkly ones or the ones that change color if you erase them.

    Pigma pens are great. Just remember to heat set them before washing. I like to use a piece of sand paper behind a block to make it easier to write on.
