    the ink might bleed through to the front with time.

    They say even those blue marking pens that are supposed to wash out -- the marking can re-emerge with time.  There's a book on quilt marking by Pepper Cory, that, once you read it, has you kind of nervous about what you mark with.  It made me nervous, anyway.

    When I'm marking for quilting, I like Roxanne's pencils.  They really do wash out.  They're the best I've found, anyway.

    You can order Pootie Pads here. Pooties love them!

      for the same reason, they come back especially if the quilt is exposed to cold, but I don't think I would be as concerned with the stamp template only because it is the seam line, theoretically anyway. But you are right it's a concern. I can't do any hand sewing anymore so the whole issue is moot for me.

      I have a new favorite marker it's called the Chalkoner, I only have white right now. It is the best marking tool I have ever, I mean ever, found. I rolls out a nice clean line that says on but also comes off.

      This is the only place I could find on a quick web search. I got mine at the Sew Expo in Puyallup this last year.

      Sorry for the late response, my internet was down last night, sigh.
