Does anyone have a favorite brand of marking pen. I want something water soluble to mark a baby quilt which is mainly pale green. The pens I have used so far seem to take a lot of going over and over before I see the line clearly. I am only trying to mark a simple grid pattern but seem to be having trouble getting something dark enough to see that will disappear by itself. Thanks.

I love the Frixion pens. The marks disappear with the iron. That's my favorite lately.

If you plan on washing your quilt afterward try Crayola Washable Markers. I use fine tip. They come in a variety of colors, wash out easily and are inexpensive! I do test them on fabric prior to using them, but have never had a problem.

Frixion pens are the best I use them all the time and no problems.

Indeed the Frixion pens are the way to go.
