    Hi Everyone,
    I was reading another thread about ink pen ruining a quilt and I thought I would share a new product on the market by pilot.
    It is an ink pen that is a nice sharp point in black ink that disappears when you are finished by heat. You just iron it and it is gone!
    I found it at the last quilt show I went to in july when I was buying a large embroidery project. It is amazing! I bought it from a quilt shop booth. Now I am not sure of the name of it, I think it was the blue petunia. But I have thier card upstairs if you can not find it locally.

    Here is a pic of what they look like. I think they were five bucks a piece. (Now.. don't look at my stained grout, I live in the country where the wind blows sand in all the time.)

    I should mention that they say it is a friction removable pen. But the lady showed me with an small clover iron how to take it off with heat.

    This will be great if the marks don't make a ghost appearance after several weeks. I had that happen before.

    Have you stitched with it yet? When you sew over the markings does it stick to the threads, how well does it disappear off the stitch line?

    In reading the reviews on Amazon on these pens it mentions if You leave your "math Homework in a hot car" It will disappear but you can remedy this by placing it in the freezer. So I think if your Quilt was stored where it was cold the marks may come back. Just a FYI

    In other words, don't store your quilt in the freezer!!!

    :lol:

    I would test it, iron it out, throw your test in the freezer and see what happens. If it does reappear after the chill, try washing a sample after ironing and freeze it. Better to be safe than sorry.
    I am watching to see if this will really work, cause if it does, I need some of those!!!

    I too, am very hopeful that this a solution to marking, have been waiting for THE 'miracle pen' that marks easily and disappears without a trace when you are done with it!!!!

    I have a friend out in MI looking for those. I am hoping she will find me a couple of them. Glad to hear they really do work.

    Thanks quiltzilla for the links. On the first one I saw they have a five pack multi-colored. Cool! For redwork and bluework those would be perfect!
