So I am making the hexagonal Baltimore Album blocks in parallel with my DD's quilt (which I hate - acid green, acid yellow and black and white - EYEWATERING) and I decided to do the border strips in black and whites. Real pretty - BUT - I am having a terrible time trying to find a non permanent marker that will show up. I tried yellow but the marking pencil is so soft the lead keeps breaking. I tried silver and still can't see it. I can baste the lines in red, but still the same problem - how do I see what I am basting???? I don't want to resort to actually creating a template to stick on the fabric because when I hand quilt, it will be a pain to manuver but I am running out of ideas. Help!!!
