I started a thread on here a few months ago about the Frixion pen and that I had tested it thoroughly; I thought I had.

Tuesday I marked some embroidery squares for machine embroidery on green, blue, and red. When you iron over the marks to remove them, they turn white. That's where the un-oh comes in. However, I took a wet cloth and removed it. Will it come back? I don't know.

Previously, all my testing was with a light piece of cloth. That's what the salesman at Houston used also. I never thought about the mark turning white on colors.

On my original testing, the mark did reappear when I put it in the freezer.

I tested eight colors of the roller ball pens and six colors of the highlighters. All of them re-appeared when frozen, but all of them washed out with a light hand-washing in the sink and didn't re-appear when frozen.

When Ironing it again it would go away but in the car it showed back up yes it gets cold here in the north and I guess if it is just in the house and not moved into the cold it may be fine but I am not willing to take a chance with a whole quilt.

I used the black one to mark dark applique pieces. When it's ironed and turns white, I can see the line for needle turn applique. And since I turn the line under(and the fabric is dark)it doesn't matter if it comes back or not.
