    Has anyone used a fine tip black permanent marker on their quilt? Mine will be just a wall hanging - not washed often)..It would also be used just to outline one side of a design to help with shadowing. Appreciated the responses

    I have a set of them that I use all of the time.
    I heat set them with a dry iron :D:D:D

    Hey taylor

    When you heat set the maker design, do you iron right over it or through fabric?

    I have used both the Pigma pens and the Sharpies for signature quilts, and both work fine. Use a hot dry iron and press right over the marked areas.

    I use them to sometimes cover up white thread that I used in seams on darker fabrics (too lazy at the time to change thread). I've never had a problem with it bleeding. I do iron over it after I'm done.
