    All I can tell you is, don't use the orange chalk marker that comes in the variety pack for Clover chalk holder pen. Ask me how I know.

    I have been using
    Frixion pens a lot. So far no problems at all. I like them much better then the air or water pens. I had a faint white line appear on some dark fabric when the color was ironed away but it went away when I washed the quilt and hasn't returned. The Frixion pens are archival and non toxic from what I find online about them.
    Got fabric?

    Do you iron away the marks of frixion pens? or is it safer to blow dry the marks away? Are these pens expensive? I will give them a try.
    Our quilt guild is doing a fabric swap using scrappy half square triangles. I made pinwheel blocks and each section of the pinwheel is a different fabric. I will trace a circle template over the scrappy pinwheel block to cut out a circle. The challenge is to find a marking pen that works on 8 different fabrics. ha!

    I use the sewline pencils and have never had a problem. Different colored lead for different fabrics values.

    From experience I go the cheapest and easiest, charcoal pencil. Press lightly is all you need and it comes out clean in the wash. No troubles so far! Good Luck whichever way you choose.
    Thank You Lord for answering my prayers, in this I am truely blessed!

    I iron the frixon marks off. I wash the item and all the pen residue comes out. If you don't wash, the marks will reappear if below 32 degrees.

    I use the washable markers at times when my chalks and washable marking pen aren't doing the job. I'm careful to choose a close color to whatever I'm marking, not significantly darker. I haven't had any problems so far.

    I use them all the time, the only thing I don't like is if you try to just spray out the marking it makes a mess but when you wash it all the markings come completely out.
