Recommended Posts

WOW THANKS FOR THE GREAT IDEA!!! I love organization!! That's awesome. Now if only I could get my organized side of me to play nice with the creative side of me. Anyone got an answer for that? :o

Thanks so much for posting your idea. Do you have a problem with the tracing sticking to the other side of the protector and coming off? When I appliqued, I used upholstery plastic and always had to keep the tissue paper between the plastic sheets. So I was dreading trying to come up with a way to use that type of plastic to trace my pantos..

Also how much price variation is there in stitching? I am just starting to quilt for the public and would like to be knowledgeable about what to charge. I had already discovered the different in some of the pantos and I know I don't have any real complicated ones. In my area I think $.015 is starting for pantos.

:D thanks guys! I always have liked organizing! Sometimes I don't get the time though...

Lisa- I did do my Circle Lord boards too- just forgot to mention it. Sharpie just seems to follow the groove like magic!

Libby- Hummm, always have wanted to see PA...

That is a very cool idea, now if I only had the time to get organized.....Yes, Cheri, you better get started while you only have 7 as the job seems a bit daunting when you get into double digits.....

Thanks Ardelle!!

oh, don't know how I missed this... what a great idea Ardelle! Am going to do this too.

One question though... how did you get that nice clear computer printout of your panto for your "paper" binder? I just now tried by saving the thumbnail image of a panto off the internet, then inserted it into a Word document, but the image is all distorted from enlarging it. Did you trace that too? ...or what am I missing?! :o

Thanks for the awesome idea!

I had the same problem trying to save them into a Word doc. So, I took all of my paper pantos and went to Office Depot and stood at the copier and copied a nice image of each one. I made a binder with each in a sheet protector. Now whenever I buy new ones, I just run over there and make a copy and add to my binder.

Thank you so much for sharing this.

I looked at Office Depot and Office Max this week, but neither had the legal size sheet protectors....even said they didn't make them. Now I need to look for a legal size notebook to store them in.

So I just ordered some from Tiger Direct (and they were heavy duty) for $14.99. I actually ordered them through ebay, but they are being sold by Tiger Direct.

I look forward to using this neat idea.

I think I will trace my Circle Lord long boards too. And maybe even some of the other designs.
