Lately I have read on quite a few quilting blogs quilters saying that they are terrified or scared of using the blue pen on their quilts. In fact one person stated that the blue pen “scared the crap out of her and was terrified to use it”. I am talking about a pen called “Mark B Gone”. This product goes by other names as it is produced by many companies. I have been using this marking pen on fabric for marking quilting lines for I don’t know how many years. I have never, ever, had a problem getting the lines out. The one rule the product comes with though is that you have to wet it completely to get the lines out and not to use any heat on it until it is out. I set up a series of photos to show you how you use it.
This is just a little sample of course. It works for me. If you are unsure of a product however you should always test it on a square of the fabric though to make sure it is ok.
(I am in no way affiliated with the company that makes these pens, just a satisfied customer )
