That's a nifty product Anita. Would really be handy on complicated patterns. Thumbup

I had the same thing happen. I think I used peroxode, but I am not sure of that. It was several years ago.

Buzzysma, did you get the blue out? Im so sorry that happened to you, what about one of the oxygen bleach powders thats safe for colours?

I use a window and trace my embroidery designs, I trace them with zig pigment pens, never had a problem with them, I use the brown for tracing designs or I use a lead pencil

Good Luck

Thanks everyone. I'm still working on getting the blue out. The lady at the quilt store said to just keep spraying it, let it dry & spray again and again till it's out. so I'm still at it. I went to 4 stores in Rhinelander looking for ZIG pens - none! Today I was in Green Bay at JoAnn's & they didn't have them either even though online it said that store had 3 left! So I'm going to order one online tomorrow. In the meantime I used a MICRON Archival pen to trace my next block. It's permanent ink so I better keep my stitches on the lines.!

Hi i normally use pencil but have been trying frixion pens and the transfer-eze. I like them all.
I finished my Birdie Stitchers blocks and have them sewn together but no borders yet.











I'm hoping to get the borders on next week!

Nice job, Linda 2B, very pretty blocks. I know it will be great when quilted.

Buzzy'sma, I had the same problem with that blue pen so I don't use it anymore. I still have blue on my "forever quilt" that I am quilting by hand, it will take forever. I have sprayed it several times but still have some blue, I plan to wash it or rinse it when it is finished and hope it will be gone then. Good luck with getting yours out, let me know what works when you do.

Below are pictures of mums birdie blocks to date, she has only coloured in these ones so far, they are still at pencil stage as not yet painted with water to become water coloured. She has just started embroidering the xmas one Very Happy
