    Be sure to read the comments, too. At a quilt show, the demonstrator states she marks FMQ registration lines with Frixion pens and the marks completely disappear with Grandma's Secret Spot remover... she's never had it fail. http://www.amazon.com/Grandmas-Secre.../dp/B0021JD2S0

I'd never seen one before but these flexagons are normally made out of paper. This young man (who's page I'm linking) made one out of fabric.

    2. Sew one strip of each of the 3 fabrics together on the long sides to make a three-strip unit, WOF long. I always put my darkest fabric in the center, as the center strip forms the
