Please respond here if you can help this lady, thanks.

Dear Mary We are making a quilt for my daughters wedding, called a signature quilt. We have used white muslin for the write on patches and will be taking it down finished tied to the wedding. What best could we have people to sign it with that would be kind to the many hours we have spent quilting it. By the way it was my first quilt and thank god for many watched quilt shows and my connection to your useful tips were doing pretty good, my daughter in law and I. Thanks you for any information you can give me as to this information. Oh I live in Chehalis, WA. USA By for now hope to h ear from you soon. Peg Fritz

You really need 2 things: a flat surface beneath the quilt, so that people can sign easily, and some waterproof pens for them to sign with. Pigma pens are artist's pens that come in different colors or black, and in different stroke widths. I would use the ones that make a strong line, not too thin. I have never had one smear fabric.
