    Say I have a 7" border all the way around the quilt and I wanted to do a 5-1/2" (or so) panto in it...I see how I can quilt horizontally the pantogram. But when it comes to the veritcal sides, how would I quilt them???? I have seen some pantos with the corners to them and a little of the sides to the panto that go up, but am not sure how that works. I was wanting to try a different border panto and then something different for the quilt....

    Has anyone done this before?

    i do believe if using the same panto for the top/bottom borders and the side borders the quilt is unloaded and turned to do the sides when the time comes. the borders would be quilted last after the center, up to the top, down to the bottom then unloaded, turned 90 degrees and re-loaded for the final 2 borders
