I began using plexiglass, placed over the quilt, to draw potential custom designs. I adopted this idea from my mentor, Cindy at Longarm University. When I have a great plan, I take a photo of it and send it to my client, for their approval. This way, I can try many designs before stitching.
This is my pantograph collection. Many designs can be chosen from my collection.
Here are most of my templates. In order to sew a perfect circle, heart, straight or wavy line, I use my template.
