Christmas goodies....pantos!

I got some new pantos for Christmas from my daughters. I am excited to try them out!
My machine has a throat space of about 11" so I can only quilt about 6-8" at a time.
I am not a world class quilter yet....maybe some day...lol....so hopefully I can do these. this one has 2 patterns.
Now I am anxious to try them out....I have a quilt to do for someone so probably won't practice on it, but maybe after I get that one finished I will put something of mine on. Yes, Virginia, I have a few unquilted items....lol

How nice!
I wonder, do you quilt with the machine (long arm?) or just by hand?
How do you use these? I have never seen something like this before.
Maybe you can make some photos while using them?
It looks exciting!
Bye

I would love to use the pantographs but I don't have the stitch regulator which I have heard is pretty important to making the pantos work well.

Sounds like a great Christmas.

I love those patterns. Panto's can be such fun to do.
