Lol. I made that design in Illustrator. What kind of pencil/whatever would you use to trace the design with? Should I baste the whole thing and then trace or lay just the quilt top out, do the tracing, and then baste?

Long time lurker, first time poster.

I'm kind of new to quilting and I want to make a quilt for my very best friend who's really, really into his Kawasaki motorcycle. I'm planning on just sewing two lengths of yardage together for the black so it won't be traditional quilt blocks of any kind and then doing the big green K as an applique. The backside will probably just be more yardages of black fabric sewn together but I'm not 100% sure on that yet. What I really need help figuring out is the sewing of the tire tread pattern which will be green thread on the black fabric and black thread on the green fabric. Does anyone have any ideas on what the most efficient way to do this would be?
Thanks!
