Pantographs are continuous line quilting designs on a paper roll.  The roll is approx. 11 to 12 feet long.  A pantograph pattern is typically used by long arm quilters or machine quilters using a frame.   The long arm quilter unrolls the pantograph across the back table of the long arm; then, with the assistance of a stylus or laser pointer that is attached to the long arm machine, the quilter moves the machine tracing above the pantograph design which is simultaneously stitched out. This process is repeated row by row down/or across the quilt depending upon how the top is loaded on the machine.
