    I also use the pens and love, love them. They have ironed out on all of my fabric.

    I use chalk which comes in a container shaped like a marker, and which has a tiny wheel at the marking end. The wheel rolls as you move the "pen", and the chalk makes a fine line, which brushes off easily. I think this also comes in a holder which is triangular shaped. I think tailor's chalk would work just fine, but I don't have any.

    I also use the chalk called the "Ultimate Pounce Powder", in the pounce made for it. I use white and blacklight powder (which is white and looks fluorescent green under a blacklight) in the pounce with stencils. It also comes in blue, which I quit using once I had trouble getting the blue marks out. That's when I switched to using blacklight powder instead of blue for light colored fabrics.

    Just wash it and the Frixon pen will wash off.

    Remember, people will see your quilts long after you are gone....NOT your housework!
