    Do you think using a Pounce and chalk would work with this?

    I put the tulle in a small circular quilting hoop to keep it stiff, and that works very well for me.

    Thank You... you may have just solved my quilting a nice pattern problem. I can't always afford to pay a LA quilter and will gladly try this.

    I liked the idea of using the Press 'N Seal but my thread kept breaking. Any suggestions to fix this problem? I'm getting ready to quilt another top and would love to be able to use the P 'N S again.
    Thanks,

    Marking for quilting is one of my least favorite tasks. Thank you for a nice, clear, step-by-step tute. And also the subsequent tips in the comments! I'll try this for my next one. Thanks again!

    Have seen similar, but your description is better. Thanks! I have yards of net, purchased for scouring cloths and scrubbies that I crocheted a long while ago. I'm all set!

    I love this tute, and will be trying it out. I would use it when hand quilting which I enjoy. If someone did a nice notebook thing with these added for someone who doesn't have it, that could make a very special gift too.

    What a very clever idea. I am in the process of doing my first double bed block FMQ quilt and this will come in handy.

    Mrs. Beasley,You mentioned that you've used a number of different kinds of pens to mark the tulle. Have you ever had a problem with the ink from the pens transfering to your quilt? Some time ago, I tried tracing a design to tulle using a Sharpie. I thought because Sharpie advertises that their ink is permanent, the ink wouldn't transfer to anything else. I used one of the water soluable Mark B Gone pens to trace the design to the quilt. The Sharpie ink started to turn the tip of the water soluable ink pen( was one of light blue markers) dark and a slight trace of the dark ink was left on the quilt and couldn't be removed. The blue ink of the WS pen did disapear but not the trace of dark ink. Fortunately the quilt was just a fun quilt for a granddaughter and not an heirloom! Sure would appreciate hearing what your experience might be.

    No, Chris, I've never had that problem. I've used dollar store markers, pencils, a ball point pen, perhaps I've just been lucky. I can't remember ever using a 'Sharpie'. I'm so sorry that this happened to you. When I get stains on a quilt I'm working on, I usually grab my 'Mr Clean Magic Eraser', but I don't know if it would take out permanent marker. Perhaps someone else on the board can offer you a hint. How soon after marking the tulle did you start marking? I'm thinking that some chemical in the water soluble ink reacted with the Sharpie ink to dirty up the tip in the blue pen. Has anyone else had a reaction like this?
