Quick tip for marking

Today's tip is about quilting designs and marking. You can easily try out different quilting designs with two very inexpensive items. Go to your local Walmart or Joannes fabrics or whatever you have and buy a sheet of clear vinyl and then get a fine point dry erase marker.

Lay the clear vinyl on top of your quilt top. Use the dry erase marker to audition different designs.

If you decide you don't like the design use a scrap of batting to erase the marks.

Try different designs until you are satisfied. Then use chalk, air eraseable, or water eraseable marking pen to transfer the designs to the quilt top.
