Pantograph Patterns - By Designer

Pantos by Designer

Pantographs are continuous line quilting pattern designs on a paper roll designed for use on longarm quilting machines. The roll is approx. 11 to 12 feet long. (unless otherwise noted).  A pantograph quilting patttern, or panto, is typically used by longarm machine quilters or machine quilters using a frame. 

The longarm machine quilter unrolls the pantograph quilting pattern across the back table of the longarm. Then, with the assistance of a stylus or laser pointer that is attached to the longarm machine, the longarm machine quilter moves the machine to stitch while tracing the pantograph quilting design with the stylus or laser. This process is repeated row by row, down or across the quilt, depending upon how the top is loaded on the longarm machine.

If you are a domestic machine quilter, and pantos appeal to you, take a look at the Quilting Made Easy products, which are designed for the domestic machine quilter.
