I just smooth the Press n Seal over the pattern in a book or one that I have printed from my computer. It leaves a tiny bit of tackiness, but not enough to even make the pages stick together. When I mark a template for use on darker fabric, I use the golden tracing paper, as it tears away very easily. I used to use it exclusively before Press n Seal hit the market. The plastic wrap moves easily when you are manipulating your quilt through your machine.
I only pre-mark about 10% of my quilting designs before stitching. I usually decide what design I want to use, and if I want part of the design to be in a regular spot on the quilt, I mark the spots with a pin, to remind me to stitch a leaf, flower, butterfly, etc. in that spot. I have also quilted words and phrases in the border of a quilt, using a chalk marker as a guide line for the letters, and rarely in a straight line - curves are so much nicer!
