    I bought this template and the woman told me at the FMG shop that i would have to cut out the center marks...ok...so I bought it. My husband said if I do that the template will fall apart...Yikes...has anyone used these to FMG with there machines?

    you use a washable pen or pencil and trace the lines, I think you can use chalk too

    You can draw it on your block with a pencil or use pounce pad to mark your quilt top, just make sure whatever you use is removable. then sew on the marks

    I use the chalk all the time and have no problems. If you do not wait to long, you can use an old tooth brush and just brush it a way. Good luck!

    I trace onto tissue paper then pin it on and then sew on the lines. Then I just tear it away.

    Your DH is right. I cant imagine someone saying to cut them out! I dont think I would be asking her anymore questions!

    I would use a Pounce Puff - it is filled with chalk and comes out like using a powder puff. Place in place on your quilt, pounce it then quilt! The pattern is great - I like it.
