    CAN YOU HELP??? When using a panto how do you place the needle for the next row to be quilted??? ALSO What do you do at the end of the quilt when the whole pattern doesn't fit the space you have remaining?? I love the edge to edge designs now available but not sure about the placement of the needle for the next row. Thanks in advance, for your help. quilterjoan

    Sounds like you may need a video to help. I did a quick search on www.youtube.com and came up with quite a few video tutorials that will help you. http://www.youtube.com/results?searc...antograph&aq=0

    Most Pantos will suggest placing your needle in the highest point before scrolling your fabric up. That way you know you won't chop off the top edge of the design.
    If you don't want the design to run off the edge, you'll have to do some planing first.
    Adjust where the design starts so that the end falls within the area you want quilted. Then you freehand in the small areas before the first design and after the last one to make it pleasing to the eye. (you can sketch it onto the panto)
    And definitely check out the youTube videos.
