Playing with Pantographs


Autumn Wind
 Here are a few of the designs I've been playing with on my new longarm. Some purchased, pantographs, like Autumn Wind and Fan Palm.

Wood Grain is my own design, which was created initially for quilting Fancy Forest by Elizabeth Hartman.  I converted it from a freehand to a computerized program because it's been so popular.

Fan Palm
Pipeline at the bottom is a modified pantograph design that came with my new longarm.

Much as I love the relaxing motion of driving the longarm myself, the computer has already given me so much more freedom to experiment with designs that require a more accurate line or a steadier hand than is possible to do with freemotion.  Next up - CIRCLES!
