When I bought my first long arm, I didn’t think I would ever use pantographs. Boy, was I wrong! Don’t get me wrong, I love free motion work, ruler work etc., but pantos have their place.
Pantographs assure even density in quilting across the surface of the quilt.
They are perfect for quilts that will get washed a lot, like baby quilts.
And often, the quilting design is secondary to the piecing. That is why I use pantos most of the time for QOVs.
There are so many amazing designs these days as well. Gotta love this texture!
When I bought a bigger long arm, I hadn’t thought much about using bigger pantos until my friend, Lynn, opened my eyes. She told me about ordering custom sizes to take advantage of the bigger throat on my machine. That was a light bulb moment for me! I ordered a few and loved them!
Twice a year, Urban Elementz has a 25% off everything sale. I wait for these sales! I thought I missed it this year, but it is going on right now and ends December 9th. My wish list is long. 🙄 So far, I’ve narrowed things down to this:
If you’ve been wanting one of the Dream Big panels, they have those also.
I think I need to find a way to better organize my panto collection!
Have a great day!
