Quilt Marking

Quilt Marking

Instead of using a marking pencil with a quilt stencil, I use a foam paintbrush. I dip it into loose chalk, and dab it over the stencil. It's really quick!

I am going to try that next time I mark
I have been using the chalk pounce tool but have not had much success...it either puts too much or too little...can't even see the line properly. With it though came a bag of extra powdered chalk, so I plan to use your idea next time I'll do a quilt. I also want to try the baby powder as well. Thanks for sharing.
removing marks
I have used the chalk marking pen to mark the border of the quilt. I can't get the marks off now HELP!

I've also found that I can use baby powder instead of chalk.

I got the "refill" two pack of 4 oz bags and will probably have enough for life!

I use baby powder...It brushes away easily.

Thanks for the tip, but where do you get loose chalk? Or do you smash sticks of chalk?
