Hello, Quilters

Today, I was listening to one of my favorite podcast from Pat Sloan and heard about a new product called Print-N-Fuse. I found this video of a women demonstrating of how she used the Print-N-Fuse to applique her quilt. There was also a pen they talked about also that is good for marking designs its called the friction pen. I was wondering if anyone has heard of these products. I think I might buy them just to see if they work well or not. I'm always looking for things to help me quilt better, lord knows I need the help were I can.

okmom, this looks like a fast way to get multiples of a design printed on a fusible.  i don't like working with raw edge applique, because most of my quilts are used as quilts.  for wall hangings or something that isn't washed a lot,  it is great.   thanks for the link

I haven't used the print and fuse before but I love the Frixion pens.  They come in several different colors and work great.  I got mine from Amazon.

I love my Frixion pens too! They just don't last long enough!!!! Of course, the real problem is probably the fact that I expect it to last forever! LOL!

I love the Frixion pens too.   They demo'd them during our shop hop in September  I used a pencil marker for my placement pattern and it doesn't show up nearly as well as the Frixion pen that Marlene used.  They are a great product but don't leave them in the window of a hot car or in direct sun (hot) for a long time.  Frixiion also makes eraseable hi-liters.

I saw those hi-liters on one of the web sites I was on recently.  Didn't know that they made those.

They erase nicely on 'shiny' paper but not as well on copy paper.   I should see what they do on a piece of scrap fabric.

They work fine Maggie.  I had the hi-lighters before I found the regular pens.  They just make a fatter line.

The LQS owner told us to be sure to store our Frixion pens with the writing tip pointing down.

Thanks MN Nancy. Perhaps that was a problem for me as I was laying them down as that was what I was told to do for other brands of marking pens. [quote
