Along with planning how I’ll quilt the pink and cream top, I’m pondering how to mark the quilting lines. There will be cables and probably some feathers, the stencils are handy. But, as the background is a solid cream, the Pounce white powder obviously won’t show up and I’ve read that the blue powder sometimes doesn’t come out.
Pencils are out — too many times I’ve read about pencil marks not coming out without practically rubbing a hole in the fabric. The vanishing pens or wash-out pens? Again, I’ve read some not-great reviews about those.
I’ve used the chalk pencils in the past and will probably use these again but, as it has been a while since I’ve thought about this, I’m wondering what do you use? Is there some new tool for marking that absolutely comes out easily without affecting the fabric? What do you use?
