    I have a 18" nolting and am curious which pantos the "experts" feel are the best to start practicing with for a newbie. :D
    I am also looking for a great book/video that would help with the process of learning panto placement. There are so many advertised as "the best" but figure experience speaks louder than advertisement.
    Thanks

    I have not yet bought any pantos so I am looking forward to seeing all the responses to this.

    Well, I know there are many gifted longarm quilters here, so figured it's the best place to ask.

    As a newbie I bought panthos (which look to complicated for my newness) and rulers that I am not ready to jump into. Interested in seeing other posts for suggestions. Good question :-)

    I like one called Chantilly Lace because it is loopy. You want to get a flow going so stay away from straight line, to start with. This is just my opinion.
    Here's Chantilly Lace.

    I had the 17" Nolting Fun Quilter for many years and learned thru experience that any panto over 10" is too wide.... if you stay under that size, you'll be fine.
    I like Popcorn, Cotton Candy, Wildflower and most any of the Jody Beamish pantos. Hers have a nice flow.
    Have fun and remember to 'dance' with the machine!!

    Have it!!! will try that one for sure..also isn't there a way to know if the panto's are "nesting" so that you can line them up easier?
    Thanks

    I keep trying to "dance" flow but everyonce in awhile I trip over my own 2 feet!!! End up getting some really interesting goobers amongst the smoother sections!

    Thanks Kathy and Whinnytoo....I can use all the suggestions I can get.
    I am only doing my own quilts and projects, never want to do quilt tops for others. But do want to explore and play with my own.
    I am busily printing out the suggestions. Any ideas are much appreciated.
