    Hi Stephanie, I'm a hand quilter so I use chalk or pencils specifically made for fabric.
    Not sure if this is what you wanted though. :)

    I use silver, yellow pencils and chalk and I have started using the new Pilot Frixion pens. They are fantastic. I get then in a pack of 6 colors. Just be sure you read and follow the directions. I am also a hand quilter. I have had bad experiences with the blue and purple pens.

    I just purchased my first Frixion while on the Shop Hop this month. Are you finding any problems with them? Or do all colours just disappear with the heat of the iron? How have they worked on the dark fabrics?

    I love the one I have so far .... though I'm totally scared it'll not keep working that way!! :)

    I'm just finishing up a king on the frame. I made the motifs with paper and traced around them with a sliver of soap. this only works on darker fabrics.

    the L shape paper is to center the flower
