I know I’m posting a lot today but I’m trying to make up for lost time!
Normally I wouldn’t quilt a top that had just arrived when I have others that have been waiting a while but I had a donated backing that fit it perfectly, cream thread already on the machine, and I wanted to try out this new pantograph that I’d recently purchased.
The donation top was sent to me by Sue in Lakeland FL and the pantograph is Halcyon.
The pantograph is just what I look for when buying one.
- as close to the maximum size that can be quilted by my machine to decrease the number of times I have to roll the quilt. (this one is 10 inches and my machine can quilt about 12 inches)
- fairly loose so it’s quick to quilt AND the quilt stays soft and cuddly
- a design that will adds a pretty element or great texture to the quilt
And here’s a closer view of the quilting and the photo can be clicked on to enlarge it.
