Pantographs are one of the most widely requested designs for machine quilting. It consists of a single decorative pattern which runs the entire full length and width of the quilt. The pattern is repeated as necessary until the entire length of the quilt is covered. Many designs are available and new patterns are added frequently. The price is broken-down into three categories due to the amount of time and complexity of each design. Meandering is freestyle stitching.
