I have used the black, brown, and red so far.  I am liking the looks of the pink for darker colors but haven't tried it yet.

I also tried this on a sample fabric and (maybe due to bad karma) I had problems.  The ink did come out of the fabric (where I had marked) , but also deeply colored the rinse water and the white fabric I was using in the test became tinted from the ink.  I was not very happy with the results myself.  Anyone else have this happen?  (Or maybe it really was bad karma!)

I used the yellow Crayola brand washable color markers and had no tinting of my fabric.

What markers were you using.  The Frixion pens makes a really fine line and doesn't even show thru to the back of the fabric.   The ink all disappeared with heat from the iron.

I just used Crayola brand kids washable markers. They do go through the fabric a bit but even bit of it washed out

Nana,

I have to agree with your comment on the Frixion pens.  I absolutely love them.  the only trouble I had was that I forgot to iron the top BEFORE I marked it and had a lot of re-marking to do.  LOL  I was thinking the bright green might be good on the dark colors too.  Maybe they will come up with a lighter color if we contacted them and asked?  Do you think it would be worth a try?  I sure would love a white one.  : )

I was trying the Crayola brand washable markers with a fine tip.  I tried the red  (why not go all the way), and it bled into the water and the fabric to where the fabric was definitely a pale pink.  Obviously with a white background, this was not OK!  I will be get the Frixion pens with the fine tips.

I have Crayola markables before and didn't like the results much.  The ink did seem to bleed even though it washes out of the fabric.   Sometimes it takes several washes.

Inklingo is great but it does not provide quilting lines. They are for piecing. Most people use it for hand piecing but you can use it for the machine too. There are videos on the site and Linda Franz is also featured on QNNtv.

When I joined QCA coupons and a video for Inklingo were included in the welcome package. I tried it and loved it. I bought books and CDs and now it's available as downloads. Love it.
