I went searching for this pattern last year and found it in a pile of discarded quilting magazines donated to my quilting group. Now, I just need to find a place for it on my on my quilt "To Do List". So nice to see someone else like this pattern enough to make it themselves. It is fun and happy!

I used the quilt-from-the-back technique because I wanted a repeating pattern edge to edge and, as I have a mid arm, you can't use panto's on it. Therefore, drawing it on the backing and then following it to quilt was my best choice.
I found it to be pretty easy and quick to follow and also that I only had to mark every other column because I could just look at the one I had done before and copy it.

Neat quilt and quilting, Watson. And neat way to use a panto on a sit down machine.

That’s such a pretty quilt! I tried quilting from the backside. It turned out fine, but I kept looking on the front to make sure it looked ok. I used the backing fabric pattern for the quilting.

What a happy quilt with wonderful quilting. You did a great job. That is my favorite way to do an edge to edge too on my Tiara. If I make up my own design it is difficult to keep it consistent in size, or I start out too small and regret it halfway through the quilt. I just bought two more panto designs to expand my selection: one being for Bonnie Hunter's Grassy Creek.
