    I usually mark my grid with a wash out blue pen and a long ruler... :D

Then there's no need to pull up the bobbin thread and tie and bury it(it's buried in the binding) nor worry about exactly matching the stitch in the middle.
    That's the same way I do it and it has always turned out great. I usually mark with chalk.

    That's what I did on my bow tie quilt. Since I'm a total beginner and it worked for me, it must be an easy method. :)

    I have always used masking tape and it works fine for me.
