I used a white fabric marker to mark the quilting lines on my black background.  its supposed to come off with water but some marks are still there.  Any ideas?

Sorry you had such a problem.  I use a fons and porter mechanical chalk pencil and have never had a problem with it not coming off.   What type of marker did you use.

Lisa,

If you don't get it all out, have you considered using a black thin line permanent marker to go over the lines? I've not used it on my quilts but I have used it on applique when some of the fabric wants to show through. Mine is call Pigma Micron #1 Archival Ink for Acid Free Environments.
