  5. Finishing a DJ is an amazing accomplishment! Yours is beautiful - congratulations! I have about 60 DJ blocks in my closet, and am not sure if they will ever become a quilt.

    1. The Chalk pencils are "General quilting Pencils" they work amazingly well. I also do the blue marking pen as I find that it does not fade too quickly. Did you see the blog I did about everything in my quilt box? I will add a picture of the pencils as there has been more than one question about markers. I do agree though, I has taken me forever to find ones that work. Have a look at: http://kathys-quilt-corner.blogspot.com/2014/04/happy-easter-2014.html
