Quilters sometimes use chalk to mark their quilting designs especially if the background is a dark fabric.  There are many different types of chalk on the market.  Some wash out and some disappear with a hot dry iron.  It’s best to try the product on a small practice piece of fabric before marking a large top.  Make sure it can be removed as some chalk can stain your fabric.

In the photo, the scallop pattern on the left has been marked using a pounce bag filled with chalk.  The scallops on the right were made with a marking pencil.  The lines on the far right were made with chalk liners.
