Press'N Seal

i had been having trouble. more like lack of confidence. in stitching snowflakes on my block. the fabric wasn't see-thru. & my pencil marking lines were not so accurate. more like guesses. snowflakes go on the 1st block. so i just left it. today i was working on my 4th block. i had another picky day at class. that's right. i'm picky. which fabric should be which part of an owl was driving me crazy. the important thing was that i made decisions. that i was happy with. & finished the fusing part before leaving class. so it's ready to be stitched.

Nedra on Cactus Needle mentioned here that a friend showed her how to use Press'N Seal to mark random lines on your work. & when done just pull it away. you can't really see the plastic on my work. so i crumpled it up so you can see what it looks like. but you Mommies guys out there probably know what it looks like.
i did have to fiddle & pick at it to remove the plastic. so i would not recommend this for heavy stitching. not posting proper pic of block. i wanna finish first. telling you right away in case you needed this info. no sense you not working on something for 3 months just because i did.

I like to hand quilt ,do you sew through the plastic? Did you pin or baste it first or does it just stick, this could open up a whole new world of quilting!
