I've been trying to figure out a way to mark the quilt lines on my quilt. I have several tops that I want to get quilted and I've worked out the designs that I want to use but my problem is marking them. Sence they are bed sized quilts I could spend hours with a light box and the blue marking pen, but marking them could be hours for me or would turn into days, months, years, who knows around here.
I've used the chalk marking method before but the result was less than favorable. The lines didn't wash out the first or second time I washed the quilt. I have tried the paper method as well but centering the design in the space, not so well.
I've considered the pounce pad and chalk but I've never used this before and I don't know how well the lines would come out. So If you have tried this method, was it quick and easy? And how well did the lines come out?
I would be using a midarm brother sewing machine and getting my hands over the lines as well so I would like to know if the lines stayed put until you've sewed over the design as well.
