The Continuous Line Pantograph Pattern Roll is uniquely designed to suit any longarm system. A quilting pantograph is an overall design that is stitched through the 3 layers of a quilt. The quilting is done from side to side, top to bottom, and over the entire quilt, without regard to the pieced or appliqued design on top.
When sewing, the paper pantograph is placed on a table attached to the back of the quilting frame and a light that is similar to a laser pointer is fastened to the machine. The quilter then moves the machine, which is also attached to the frame, up and down the length of the frame, using the light to follow the pattern printed on the pantograph. Often the quilt itself is not examined until after an entire row of the pantograph has been sewn. After one area is quilted, the quilt, which is on 2 sets of rollers, is rolled to expose an un-quilted area and the whole process begins again.
