This tutorial shows you how to make very simple but neat washing instruction labels for your quilts. Print a page of 12 or 14 and you're set for quite a while!!
I like the simplicity of this.

Hi Jazz, Welcome to the board. Do a search on the board for Free motion Quilting or FMQ. Also go to Leah Day's website, Daystyle designs for lots of trips and tricks and how to's for FMQ on a domestic sewing machine. You need a special foot called a hopping foot, also known as embroidery foot. If you can find an open type for your machine that increases your visibility alot! Here is a link to Leah's website:

For darker fabrics I use watercolor pencils. They come in many color shades and I use one a few shades lighter than the fabric.
Most of the markings are already gone after finishing the quilting, it's also possible to brush them off.
For light fabrics I use the method of needlemarking with a darning needle. It works great and no marks
