Default Sharpie Autographs

Hello!
I am making an autograph block for Virginia Quilt Museum Block Challenge.
What would I use to sign the block?
Can I use a permanent "Sharpie"?
Thank you for your help.

not sure, you should try it out. I've been in swaps and used Micron Pigma pens .05 size. i always heat set after dry and they stayed well.

Sharpie pens can bleed. I have used the Zig pens used for Scrapbooking on my quilt labels. They have held up well so far and they come in a variety of colors.

The Micron pen I used on my daughter’s baby blanket is still there 18 years later.

Micron pigma pens are a better choice than a sharpie. Sharpies blued/ fuzz around the edges when writing on fabric.

The best one I have used is called Pentel Arts Gel Roller for fabric. I buy a package at Amazon as they are hard to find in stores. It writes on fabric smooth and very black. No bleeding or blurs.

The dark circles were made by a Pentel Gel Roller for Fabric pen with a 1.0 mm Ball.
I think I ordered them through Amazon.
I learned about them while reading about using Inktense pencils.
I was messing around with the Inktense pencils.
This piece of fabric had been soaked in hot water for several hours and then washed.
