    I use the old fashioned way, soap slivers, if I am marking my lines. Just mark a few at a time.

    Clover makes a fine line white pen. The marks take a few seconds to develop but once they do, they don't rub off. They can be removed by ironing or washing, and they do not return again. I use this to mark dark fabrics all the time and never had a problem with them.

    I haven't quilted anything yet but I have used soap slivers and crayons before and they worked. I have never tried tailors chalk, would it work? Or is that the chalk everyine is refering to?

    I use chalk which comes in a container shaped like a marker, and which has a tiny wheel at the marking end. The wheel rolls as you move the "pen", and the chalk makes a fine line, which brushes off easily. I think this also comes in a holder which is triangular shaped. I think tailor's chalk would work just fine, but I don't have any.

    I also use the chalk called the "Ultimate Pounce Powder", in the pounce made for it. I use white and blacklight powder (which is white and looks fluorescent green under a blacklight) in the pounce with stencils. It also comes in blue, which I quit using once I had trouble getting the blue marks out. That's when I switched to using blacklight powder instead of blue for light colored fabrics.

    Just wash it and the Frixon pen will wash off.
