You mentioned that you need to take care on which side of the white squares you face upwards because some of them still show pink lines from your pencil. I suggest you go back to the fabric store and get a fabric marking *pen.* The one I've used for years is a felt-tip marker that makes vivid purple lines; very easy to follow. However, if you dampen the fabric, the line rapidly fades out of existence. Even if you don't actually sponge or mist water onto the fabric, after a couple weeks, natural humidity will cause the line to fade away.
