Marking quilting space

This is a quick tip on how to mark the space you have to quilt it so you don't hit what I call "the brick wall".  You know, you're quilting along, doing a graceful feather, and baam! run out of space and no more graceful feather.  So, here is what I do: I take a water soluble fabric pen stick the tip in next to my needle, and run a straight line from one side to the other.  Here's a picture;
