What kinds of pens or markers does everyone use when doing these quilts? I was told by someone that hey use a Jelly roll. Well when I went to Joanns and asked for a Jelly Roll Fabric marker the lady took me to the scrap book isle. She handed me a Gelly Roll pen that says it's waterproof. That was the only thing she could think of. Well I've had some issues. I wrote on a couple different pieces of fabric. Ironed it then washed and it seemed like it faded on all of them. One of them it completely washed out on. So what do you suggest? I'll put a pic of the block up also. They are writing on the yellow squares.

I use Pigma micropens which come in many colors and several different sizes (0.5, 0.8, etc.) Have never had any issues with fading or running after heat setting and then washing.

Where can you get the Pigma Micropens? Are they available in Wally World or do you have to get them from a fabric shop?

I like the blocks, nice and exotic with the (..zebra ..?) print.

The Gelly Roll pens are made my the same company. I wonder whats different about them. I call the LQS tomorrow and see if they have them.

I have always used the Pigma pens. I do know there is a difference in the ink, but can't remember what the difference is.

I also use a Pigma pen and have never had an issue with them. Just remember to heat set it!
