    HELP ! My chalk marks aren't coming off.

    I marked my eggplant purple border with white fabric chalk, pencil type, used dry. I tried erasing marks with eraser at end of pencil but you can still see the marks. Also tried with damp microfiber cloth and that didn't work either. Haven't been able to wash entire quilt in washing machine yet bc I still have to quilt the borders. Was trying to remove some chalk lines bc I changed my mind about motif for corner blocks. I have been working on this one for a year and it's 98% finished. Help, anybody!! Thanks.

    I have an eraser that is specifically for chalk pencils. Perhaps that would work better? Other than that, I haven't a clue. Sorry I couldn't be more help.

      What brand is it? If you know you could go to their website to check on what to do in this case. Some say do not iron over it or you will just set the mark in the fabric.
      Finished is way better than perfect! :icon_bigsmile:

          Replied there earlier. Others may have different ideas. But I would first look into the brand and its instructions then go from there.
