My friend, Lisa, is a relative new longarmer and recently bought her own Innova and has started quilting professionally! She's really built up a lot of proficiency very quickly but there are things that she still want to learn and practice. Recently it was learning pantographs. She came over and I taught her the basics. She took 2 vets quilts and borrowed a couple of pantographs and went at it.
She used the Feathered Curls pantograph on this one.
This one is a Hunter's Star. I really love this pattern and really need to make one for myself. I love them two-toned like this one and scrappy. They are all good!
For this quilt she did a simple wavy cross-hatch; my favorite go-to quilting method for charity quilts. I really like this quilt a lot. I think Becky made it. She used a dark "ugly" fabric and made it look awesome with scraps of plaid fabrics. It makes me want to go find the ugliest fabric in my and see if I can turn it into something really cool. If you wanted to make one for yourself Becky posted instructions here.
I won't count these quilts in my tally of vets quilts for the year and it's OK if I don't meet my goal of 40. With Tina and Marcy's help we've gotten at least 10 more done! I'm grateful for their help.
