If you're a REAL quilter, you have at least one UFO (unfinished object) and one WIP (work in progress) stashed in the closet or stacked on a shelf. Maybe you just need quilting suggestions, or maybe a fresh eye from a new online friend can help with block arrangements. How about a UFO swap? Any UFO conversation is welcome.

Good Morning Pat.  I put my pattern on the back on the table. I do not mind working from the back. Having said that, there are several new camera operations that you can attach to your machine and then do the pantos from the front.  I am seriously thinking of investing in the Quilt Cam from R&S Designs.  You can also use the pattern boards from the front of the machine with this camera.  I have seen this in action and it really is terrific. I also like their design boards. I have a Circle Lord and use their boards with my system.

Rebecca or Beth,I do long arm,had groove boards but was not happy with them because you have to work in the back of table,I got rid of them.For the last couple of years I just do stipping or meandering.I'm starting to get the itch to try pantos,both of your quilts look great.Explain how you use them.Do you just lay them on top of quilt and quilt on the paper or do you have to put the pattern in the back on table?

Well Deanna, should you decide to join the longarm family, let me sell you an APQS machine.  Right now they have a wonderful sale on used machines.

Beth,that is wonderful!

@Beth -- woo HOOOOO !! 

@Rebecca -- thank you :D  I'm learning that I may have to learn to longarm ! LOL

Where's the "LOVE" button ??

As a longarm quilter I can tell you we love being able to give our customers what they desire. I am always ordering a panto for a customer that I may not ever use again. I never charge for that as I figure you can't have too many patterns to chose from.

So after all the commotion over the binding, ripping it out and redoing the proper show quality way, I received from the judge a comment saying "Binding well done".  I will keep that.  I received it on a couple of the quilts I entered.  Whew, I am getting it.

Thanx Rebecca -- these horses are good, they also look like they have a lot of movement as if running across the quilt. My quilt has the look of movement too -- I really like the urban elementz one -- now to see if my quilter can get it so she can do this  LOL  Demanding aren't we ?

Deanna, I am sorry I missed your post about horsey pantos. I have one I like a lot called Wild Horses. Here is a picture of it.

I missed the first post sorry, I found it as well, and now this one.  That is fun for sure.  Good use of the black.  That made it flow better.  Reading your former post and will be good to use the horse panto. 

Now for the animal applique, that is adorable!  Love it.  So colorful and peaceful.  It is going to be a well loved quilt.
