    Hi ladies, I am having a problem. I have several quilts with dark borders that I want to stencil a quilting pattern on but I can't find anything that will show up so that I can see it to see on my machine. I know I am half blind but this is getting frustrating. What do you use and do you like it?

    O I just bought a Clover white iron off pen at my quilt shop to mark my DD bow t. tote. It has a red bottom and lots of black. The pen was absolutely awesome!! I saw them at Joanns too. When you mark, you have to give it a minute to dry and ta da! There are the lines!

    For my darks, I use either a white or silver pencil. They've always washed out for me. I got mine at JoAnn's. Check out their sewing area, as well as their quilting area, because a lot of times the same type of items are there for less $$$$. Go figure!! :-D :-D
