Any tips on marking a quilt prior to home machine quilting? I am getting ready to machine quilt a flannel quilt (I am still in the practicing stage of machine quilting, but vow to get there!)

Chalk wears off, pencil lead does not show, the blue water soluble pens don't show up on dark fabric. I had bought the clover white pen, but it does not work at all!

Would appreciate any help. Thanks.

    You might try either a silver pencil from Hobby Lobby in the art department, or I used a white dressmaker's pencil on my brown flannel quilt and it washed out fine.
