What is a Pantograph?

Here I am explaining a bit about the difference between custom quilting and using a pantograph to quilt a quilt.


  1. I did not know that! Thanks for posting this. When you are custom quilting, do you you ever mark the quilt? I know when I free motion on my domestic machine, I do not mark but mostly because I just want to get quilting!

  2. Hey there Mary! My pleasure posting this. My mom had a ton of questions about my long arm when I first brought it home and it was so hard to explain everything over the phone.

    As to your question about marking quilts...yes sometimes I do indeed mark on my quilts. I tend to just do some light veins as guidelines with a clover chalk pen. Depending on how complicated I want to quilt something I may do more marking.

  3. I see you have a raised walkway. I need to do this, also. I am 5'3" and my Gammill is high on casters... Do you have a recommendation for the height the front loading bar should be in relation to waist (elbow bend)?


Thanks for commenting! I read each one. I will either respond via email or here in the comments. xo - Tia
