Chalk Markers

One of the common discussions on the Crazy Quilt lists is templates. The topic of what to use for marking always comes up - and it was a problem I had for a long time. It kept me from using them as much as I would have liked because I couldn't find anything that worked for me. Finally at my local Hancock's Fabric I found MY solution. It is a little kit of chalk markers that comes with a chalk holder, white and colored chalks in a storage box, and a little sharpener. They also sell chalk refills. I had a 50% off notions coupon, so it was a great buy! I believe I have seen them at Hobby Lobby, and they have weekly coupons, too!

Charlene, thanks for the helpful tip. With my birdsong quilt in progress, I am on the lookout for new marking tools. This will work!

Too funny that you posted this. I'm off to JoAnn's in about an hour to buy them!

I've never seen these before so thanks for the tip. Up to now my favorite markers for cq have been slivers of white soap.

This is a much better solution than what I've been using: gel pens. The gel pen gives a great thin line...but it is permanent. Sometimes that is not so good...!

Those look like fun. I usually use either an air marker or the gold Caron d'ache pencil, but I'll look for these, too. Never hurts to have more options.
