    lol, that just had that thought, went to quilt show last weekend, blew my mind at prices, good thing I have a stash and know a discount place. Even at that I spent over $200.00 on fabric in December. Will have to finish projects before I going buying again. I wish I could wiggle my nose and everything would at least get finished, so I can start on something new.

    I have used them. It is a little scary, they are so dark, but they do come out! Only good if you plan to wash after, can't use on customer quilts!

    Thanks for the great idea! I've struggled with what to use to mark lines for sewing and stencils and have used some of the pens that you spray the lines with water and it comes out and that's not too bad. Chalk doesn't leave a very fine line. So this sounds great. I'm putting them on my shopping list.

    what a great hint. No little ones in my house for more years than I care to remember, but I'm going to buy a set of those for sure. Thanks a million. Sounds like the perfect accessory

    New idea to me but it sounds like it works pretty well. I've got a pack of them I think - will have to give it a try. Thanks for sharing.

    A local quilter introduced me to that technique. It works great. Make sure you don't iron where you want to wash it out. The soft, crayola color pencils (bright yellow, silver etc) work great, and erase better than any quilt pencil I have ever used. Another technique, If you have a pattern to trace on or print out - get it on one of the water soluble paper foundation papers. I like June Tailor's Stitch n wash. It is barely right to call it paper...so thin. Will run through the printer or copier. Vanishes with a mister of water where the stitches are. No gummy residue. Something to try next time. If you are free motion quilting, doodle your favorite drawing, scan a kids drawing or scan a Zentangle you drew...and now you have a quilt pattern to stitch through. BTW, there are 1000s of free Zentangle designs online to inspire you. Have fun and good luck.

    wait a minute. if you look at the label for Frixion pens, and i dont have it in front of me. if the temperature goes below a certain temperature the lines will come back; and if it goes above a certain temperature the lines come back. well what about cold temperatures and you keep the quilt in the car; or the very warm temperatures.

    I have used those in a pinch for a long time myself, I only have trouble with the yellow(as mentioned) and the orange ones. I just finished a quilt that had been marked with yellow, orange, and blue highlighters 4 yrs ago(I prefer these since they are the same size as a pen). After making a "solution" of a quarter cup of powdered laundry soap(Purex) and a bowl of warm water, I used a soft hand cleaning brush to apply it to the marks. I was just so sure they would never come out so I freaked and pre-soaked them, just in case. I must say, I was impressed as all the marks came out on the first wash! Even the orange marks. I had ironed, steamed, re-marked and left those marks in all this time and still got them out. I agree with the one(s) that mentioned the artists pencils as well, I have yet to have a problem getting them out either.

    I read an interesting thing about these pens...The ink disappears, but if the temperature of the quilt is exposed to 32 degrees or less, the ink re-appears. I have never used these pens and tried this experiment, but a friend told me this will happen. Maybe you just shouldn't take the quilt to any outiside winter activities...?
    Too much to quilt, not near enough time....

    I use soap slivers to mark my quilts. Being soap, it always "comes out in the wash" ! Of course, it's obvious this method works better on medium to dark fabrics.

    This sounds good, but one day my grandson left a washable marker on a large white dish towel and it bled out on the towel. My daughter said not to worry it would come out. as soon as they left I washed it and it did not all come out, and as long as I had it you see a blue spot on it. Not to be a downer, You might want to try it on scraps first. You have so much work in quilts to have a spot on it. And yes it was a washable pen.
