Mary Jane, I had a wise woman of 9 boys tell me this tid-bit...use straight pine sol to remove any crayons...and, it works. As far as using crayon (kids) on a quilt, I'd opt not for their is wax/dyes in them. (We use crayones to make kid project batiks!)Even some chaulks of kids carry a greasy substance in them. When you put much work in such art, you deserve the best:))So, endulge!:))I do quilt w/a gal that uses reg. #2 lead pencil lightly to mark. She used a fabric eraser to remove the marks if they show later. This is a great subject for their are so many ways to mark quilts and I like to hear what others are doing too. Thanks, Skeat
