|Example: Simple / Very Easy Design
This panto design is 4.5" x 144".
If you have small amount of machine throat space or if you want a very simple all over, this is a great beginning design.
Notice how the design is very simple, repetitive, flowing and open. There is no "interlocking" from row to row.

|Example: Easy All Over Design
This panto design is 9" x 144".
Notice how none of the lines touch. This design is basic, very open and flows easily. Also notice how the rows do not "interlock" but they do (in places) appear to come closer to each other than in the example above.
Non-interlocking designs are easier for beginners as risk of overlap quilting is reduced.

|Example: Easy All Over, Slight "Interlocking" Design
This panto design is 10" x 144".
This is a great overall design that gives you good, flowing, whimsical loops.
Notice how the rows on this design "interlock". More attention to placement is required as you advance your quilt in order to keep spacing good from row to row and prevent overlap stitching.

|Example: Moderate, More Detailed & Dense
This panto design is 14" x 144".
Look at the complexity and detail in this design. Notice areas where backtracking or close-to backtracking is required (fox's body and tail, body of the bunny, etc.). While this panto is not deeply interlocking, there are a few places where the row reaches slightly into the next row. There are also quite a few spikes and points.
|Example: Difficult, Complex, Deeply Interlocking Design
This panto design is 16" x 144".
If you don't have a huge throat space, this design won't even work with your machine.
Notice there's lots of interlocking and backtracking in this very dense quilting design.
