HI,. 

I just noticed your post here, and I don't have an answer for you, but you might find you'll get a quicker response if it is posted in the Chat About Anything section directly or under Techinical advice.  I'm a new longarm quilter, so I'd be interested in hearing the answer too! :D.  The only way I would think to do it is to mark it then stitch it as "W"'s across the available area then advance the quilt.  However, your question makes me wonder if there is a Pantograph available to do this, although I'm think it would be tricky to get it lined up from one pass to the next...  Good luck!

The crosshatch boards with the pop-up from Circle Lord works really well and is a good investment.  I've used mine many times.

Crosshatching with a computerized system is tough because of fabric draw up and matching each point across the quilt after each roll.  I haven't crosshatched an entire quilt but did crosshatching on a custom quilt surrounding all the blocks. I used a ruler from quilters apothecary made for crosshatching.

LOL. The computerized designs took almost no time. Just the crosshatching took lots and lots of hours!
