I'm making a wedding quilt (it's the one on the cover of this book http://www.amazon.com/Quick-Star-Quilts-Beyond-Classroom-Tes...) and am looking for suggestions on how to mark the background which is a light cream tone-on-tone. The colors in the star are sort of fall colors, but the background is that light cream, so I am wondering how to mark it so that I can machine quilt it.

I typically use a white iron-eraseable chalk, but that doesn't show up on the light background. I am reluctant to use the blue brush-off chalk as I am not at all sure that it will really brush off.

Anyone have any suggestions?
