    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

    1. I use three fabrics, with high contrast so the pattern will stand out. Cut all fabric into 2 1/2" x WOF strips.
    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
