My First Pantograph

Ok, when you look at my set up, don't laugh. :). I have a relatively small quilting room (works for me though) and didn't want to move my machine to give pantos a try.... So what is a girl to do, take a laser to the front.
This is a quilt top that a special little friend talked her mommy into buying while we were all at the 600 mile yard sale. She wants her house to be filled with quilts. So, that's where I come in. :)
I thought pantos where going to be hard and I have put them off for nearly a year. Now I know this is a simple pattern, but I think it's pretty good for a beginner. What do you think?


  1. DUH.... I never thought about doing the panto from the front - thanks so much for sharing this... There may be a panto in future yet!

  2. Rhonda, it's Laurie from Ga, I'd like to try this eventually. Did you just pin this on while you traced with your light????? Thanks for your advice. I enjoyed talking to you, hope we can meet in Atlanya!

  3. I really like that design. Do u mind sharing the name and where I may find it?

    1. It is called Morning Glory by Diff'rent Strokes.
      I have several that came with my machine when I bought it so I'm not sure where they came from. Sorry.

  4. I left the bar my top loads on up and used it like a flat surface to spread the pantograph out on. I have been quilting for almost a year now but have only been stippling. I wanted to get comfortable with my machine before moving on. Well, a year later I'm ready. :)
