What are you most proud of? Actually completing it on time. Due for the October guild show.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? If you use a marking pen double check it will come out. I used the same gel pen that irons out on a queen size quilt and it worked beautifully. On this fabric, the black lines turned white when I went to iron it off. I sprayed it with starch and a lot of the white came out but not all of it. If anyone has ideas to get it removed I'd love to hear it.

Gorgeous FMQ! I had the same experience with the marker, but the white just seemed to fade away after a bit. Those markers come in many colors. I think I'll try some of the other colors and see it they work too.

I'm going to do the same thing, I have a set of mulitple colors ordered. Sure hope these lines fade.

BEAUTIFUL!!! I would love to have a whole box of Crayolas just like this! I use the Frixion pens too and they can leave a slight white mark after they are ironed off. I have heard that a good steamer works...another student told me she uses a hair dryer. Avoid using the red, pink and orange Frixions...I've had trouble with the red coming completely out and others have had the same complaint. I am using the black, blue and purple. Gorgeous, drop dead quilting...good job! Cindy :)

Thank you so much for the kind words. The white lines did disappear after a day or two. Thank you for the advice on the other colors, so far I've only used black and blue.
