I am looking for some expert advice from some experienced fabric
My dearest friend is getting married early next year, and I want to
make her a quilt...sounds simple enough..but I want to send patches
out to all of the guests for them to write or draw on.

As there are about 200 people I need to find an easy, clean way for
them to draw/paint/write and post the patches back.

I have found these fiillable markers
but it is not really specific about what dye/paint to use in them. A
solution like this would be perfect. When I asked the trader about
these she suggested that I should not use them and should get the pre-
filled pens (which are about twice as expensive).

I am also painting the other side of the quilt so I am going to need
to get dye/paint for that as well...and I want the colours to be
consistent though out. Ahhh. confused to say the least.

I will be using calico for the back and front,
it should be washable and permanent

Many thanks for any help you can offer!

Hi there.....what about the new crayola paint crayons?  They are permanent and not messy.  They will transport well.  I saw them demonstrated at a craft store recently.  I saw a set of 8 for $4.99....hope this helps.
Your project sounds wonderful!
