I am not one to mark my tops before sandwiching them (for hand quilting) as I like to make up my mind as I go along. I often use masking tape of various widths for shadow quilting around seams or for basic cross hatching. Another marking tool I like is chalk dispenser tool. It looks kind of like a fat pen and holds powdered chalk and there is a wheel that dispenses the chalk. This tool is good for doing straight lines I use my ruler to figure out where I want the line and run the chalk pen along the ruler and it lays out a thin layer of chalk but it brushes off easily so I only mark as much that will fit in my lap hoop. I am planning a rather ambitious design on a WIP that is already sandwiched of dragons and tigers. I'm not sure how to transfer the design on the quilt. Does anyone have any experience or suggestions? Is there any kind of transfer paper out there? Or perhaps a chalk pencil that gives me more control then my little wheely gadget? Thanks in advance.
