    Continuous line quilting- what's your favorite pattern??

    I have been trying to keep adding new pantograph patterns to my collection so that I can have a large selection to choose from. I keep seeing all these nice patterns on other people's quilts. But, when I go to order one, I can't find what I'm looking for. so, what is your favorite? And where can I find it??

    I found a place called quiltingstencils.com. I have not actually bought any, but they have a very large selection, and they are reasonably priced.

    I really don't have a favorite, as most of my customers prefer custom quilting. However; quiltscomplete.com, kmquilting.com and sewthankful.com have a lot of pantos. If I were just starting out putting a collection together I would probably choose a couple of pantos with a "Man" in mind, along with a couple of florals, children's and one for Christmas. I am beginning to receive more "Modern" quilts which seem to inspire more closely stitching with some pantos show.

    Urban Elementz has quite a few free downloads. You just download the PDF and print 15 (or more) copies, then tape them together. They also have many really nice patterns for sale. http://www.urbanelementz.com/

    I also like Digitech Designs. They have a large selection also and they sell many of them at 50% off for the first 10 days they have them in stock. http://www.digitechpatterns.com/default.asp

    One of my favorites is Fantasia. I have several more but am not home right now to tell you the names.

    I usually use Patterns Complete - she is very customer service oriented. If there is something I see that they don't have she will let me know if they are getting it and if so will let me know when it is in.

    Fantasia is one of my favorites also. I have also used Froth & Bubbles, Paisley Max and Feather Frond are some that I use frequently.

    I forgot another one I recently got was Royal Plumes and it is gorgeous. However unless you have a 26" machine look around for the 15" rather than the 17". I have a 24" and the 15" works better for me.

    I also use Urban Elementz, Digitech Design, Willow Leaf Studio, and Quilts Complete. I have a few Pantos I really like. "Spring Thing" is a good one for "busy" floral quilts or even just "busy" quilts. I like "Fancy That" for children's quilts. I also really like "Melissa", "Quirky", and "Flirtatious" Pantos. For my favorite freehand quilting, I do a freehand meander and incorporate swirls in with the meandor. I actually designed myself a Panto like this but find it is faster to do it freehand than it is to line up all the rows on a Panto, so I don't use the Panto much.

    Thanks so much for this site. I don't have a long arm on a frame but can use some of these freebees for ideas on my HQ Sweet Sixteen sitdown! I'm just getting started on it and want to do more than loops and squiggles!!
