Not such good, good ideas !
I had broken something on my presser foot so that the guide wouldn't fit on any more and so I was looking for alternative methods !
So that didn't work - of course, common sense said it would never hold firm, but I had to try ! In the end I was reduced to drawing chalk lines with a very unsatisfactiory dressmaker's pencil - rather stale and too dried up I guess ! Action of some sort will have to be taken ! I feel serious research coming on because I am definitely going to lick this one - I didn't find the quilting guide all that good before I broke it as I still occasionally knocked it out of position.
The final result was far from perfect but will function perfectly well - the discrepancies don't show too badly in the busy pattern so I think I can still use it for a Christmas gift as intended.
