Hi Gang, I'm getting to the tough part of quilting the batik fan quilt and NOTHING I've tried is working for marking the design. The fabric is dark red so the purple marker doesn't show up long enough to see it. My white pencils and blue pencils just don't leave a good mark either.

Has anyone tried the Pounce system? Does it work and is it worth spending the £15 for it? I've got to have this sucker finished in about two weeks for the quilt guild AGM! Plus some other projects. This is not good!

HELP!!!!

Hi June and Glenda, yes I've tried a white and a blue chalk pencil...neither of them worked! I'm going to two quilt shops tomorrow and hope they can help me. I've taken three days off from work to get this bad boy quilted and now I've hit a brick wall! There are a couple of things I can still do to other areas of the quilt if I have to order the Pounce thingy. I just can't come up with a FMQ design I can do to go with this quilt and compliment it as well as the stencils do.

Wish me luck girls!

Kim, I've not used Pounce yet, but will be picking some up on Thursday. Several have tried it at our group, just down the road in Bawtry, and thinkit is fantastic.

Hi Kimmers............Have you tried the Sewline White leaded marker pens to see if they work? The are always good on my darker fabrics. I have one refillable pencil and supplies of both graphite for lights, and white (chalk) leads for darks........M xx

Hi Kim

Bold Beginnings Quilting Stencils and Paper.mov - YouTube

You might want to have a look at this (the first part isn't of interest )but the copying of a stencil onto the fabric without using markers is good.

Aude, thanks for the youtube link, I like that idea and might use it if worse comes to worse.

Mairan, I've got some white chalk pens and they just don't do it.

JillR, I am going to check out the quilt shop in downtown Doncaster tomorrow, then I'll hit Helen's Houses. If they don't have them, can I get you to pick one up for me? Let me know where you are going to get them and I'll call ahead to prepay for mine. If you can't that's fine, I'll figure something out.

Cheers ladies!

Helen's Houses is very unlikely to have it, ring before you go.
