I've read so many posts about the Frixon Pen for marking fabric the pros seem to out weigh the cons in the threads. However I think I'm more conflicted than ever about using the Frixon Pens for this quilt. I've put so much work into this quilt already, not to mention the cost of materials I don't want to mess up now.
Here is my dilemma and I do mean dilemma. I've made 7 thousand color coordinated Yo Yo's, I started January 1st 2012, sewing those Yo's while watching TV at night, to cover a plain cloth quilt I've made for the Yo Yo's to be sewn to.
The plain cloth quilt is a light weight white cotton with cotton batting. It is quilted and ready for me to start attaching the Yo Yo's. The reason I'm attaching the Yo Yo's to the quilt is that a King Sized area of Yo Yo's attached traditionally, tacked together at the 12~3~6 and 9 points of the Yo's, I felt would be too heavy and stressful on the 'tacking' points of a traditional Yo Yo coverlet. But tacking them to a quilt would give the quilt more life expectancy without coming apart as so many Yo Yo coverlets do over time.
I marked the plain cloth quilt with DH help, lines horizontally with the disappearing blue marker on a huge conference table....Oh woe is me the lines have disappeared, in two days time! We live in the dry air of the Rocky Mountains so humidity nor water weren't a factor!
This is a King Sized quilt and I need the lines to keep me from going wonky as I attach the Yo Yo's.... but I also need the markings to be removed once I'm done. What would you suggest?
