    I had marked the quilt with a quilt marking pencil and when I washed the finished quilt the marks did not come out. Can any of you please tell me how to fix this problem?.

    Thank you in advance,
    Jan

    Jan,

    I haven't tried this but have heard if you use that Mr Clean sponge thing and just dampen a corner and try and remove them that way. I would like to invite you to join this forum. It is the best place on the web. Many answers to questions and the best people anywhere. We are one big happy family.

    Jan, having had your very same problem - (I now use that quilt for the cat's bed) - I now mark a couple of scrap pieces of my fabric and throw them in the washing machine to make sure the marks wash out. Good Luck

    I'VE TRIED SEVERAL DIFFERENT TYPES OF MARKERS AND HAVE FOUND THESE TO BE THE BEST OF THEM ALL; "STABILO" BRAND CHINA MARKING PENCIL "AQUARELLABLE". I USE BLACK (#8008) AND WHITE (#8052), THO THERE ARE OTHER COLORS. THEY MARK EASILY, WASH OUT COMPLETELY AND ARE RELATIVELY INEXPENSIVE. I ORDER MINE BY THE DOZEN AT A LOCAL ART SUPPLY STORE. HOPE THIS HELPS!
