    We have two of those old pencil sharpeners -- one in the garage, & one in the basement. We still use them occasionally.

    jjkaiser, I have one of those pencil sharpeners in my sewing room. Didn't know people wouldn't know what it was. Am I old fashioned or what?? LOL

    I use soap, too. I usually use the small bars from hotels that DH brings home from his trips. I just shave the 4 sides to a point with a straightedge razor.

    I used white bar soap, such as Ivory, to mark a black quilt I made. Nothing special to buy and it washed out easily.

    Like the others said, chalk pencil works for me.

    I use a chalk pencil that I sharpen with a regular hand crank sharpener screwed into the wall if anybody remembers those?! Denise is right though, it will rub off so you can only mark a small section at a time or the marks will be gone when you get to them.

    It is important to get the ULTRA clean crayola washable markers. On black I personally have better luck using the white ceramic marking pencil. They make a crisp line and the markings easily brush off. Not a chalk pencil. Chalk lines rub off so easily they will disappear before you get to them.

    Black border

    I put a black border on a quilt, and now I am concerned about how I mark it to quilt it. I would like to do some sort of diamond, but it may have to be straight lines.

    Also I remember comments about washable crayola markers for quilts. Can someone refresh my memory please.

    Thanks in advance.
