  2. Debwinter - I sent you a PM RABurgan - the "Surf's Up" panto is a very user friendly and quick design, the "Scribble Grande" is a very large meander which also quilts quickly. If doing any patriotic quilts the loops and stars is a nice choice.
  3. Hi everyone, ALL pantographs except: Tapestry, Hawaiian Holiday, Very Berry, and Passion Flower are available. Thanks!! Kim
  4. I have pantographs available - just added a 'bump' to bring my post back up Pantographs and sets available. Hope you find some you would enjoy Kim
  5. RESOLVED!! Hubby bent the bottom pigtail almost straight and it is keeping enough distance from the light case now! Back in business
  6. Okay - back in business! literally... Hubby bent the bottom pigtail almost straight down and it is keeping enough distance from the light case! Whew! He knows I'm not making money when the machine is not moving..lol!
  7. Hi, Well things were great... The top thread on my Lenni is hitting the side of the light case as it stitches and the thread is shredding. When the thread is running through the top pigtail to the pigtail above the needle the thread is rubbing against the light case and shredding. I have moved the pigtails in every possible location, but it is still breaking. Any suggestions?

  9. Before purchasing I did confirm with my IQ rep that I could upgrade at any time, just in case I would recommend talking with an IQ rep to go over your specific needs before deciding. I have a Lenni on a steel table, she is nice and lightweight and the refurbished motor is working beautifully. For me, I quilt full time doing only pantos, so BasiQ was the most economical option. And with my kids ages 13, 9, and 6 I need to have some energy left at the end of the day - watching the machine run on it's own and saving my back and muscles the strain make it worth every penny!
  10. WOW! I knew everyone said the IQ would make a difference for my turnaround time, but seeing is believing!! Installation was last Tuesday, I have completed 9 quilts - and I am eating and sleeping So happy with my decision! My business is pantograph only so I went with the BasiQ, refurbished. I love the ease of adding pantos and how easy it was to learn, but the major change is in how I feel after not standing and doing pantos all day. Just had to share my excitement with ladies who speak my language! lol
  11. Hi Shawna, I just listed my pantographs for sale - take a look and let me know if you would like any. Have fun getting started!! Best business decision I ever made Kim

  13. Thanks ladies! I'm back to work today after the weekend and like your ideas I'll post photos when all done!
  14. Hello, It's been a while, doing almost exclusively pantos...until this one! It is 90"x90" - large floral border and center is squares and rectangles. I've done the sid around the applique and have a panto that goes perfect for the center - just don't know how to handle the borders, and the transition into the center...quilter has requested no feathers and not a lot of quilting - hmmm What do you think?? Here it is:
  15. Hello, I'm doing quilting a "Circle Upon Circle" quilt - originally the customer liked a pantograph, but the more I look at the quilt I think it needs a custom look. I have been doing strictly pantographs for my customers, so what do you suggest for this quilt and a custom quilting rookie
  16. Thanks girls! It's on the schedule for this week - updates will follow, and hopefully I remember how to post photos....
  17. Hello, Looking for a "Castle" panto for a customer quilt - it's for a boy, very masculine colors and hoping to find something that isn't too dense. I'm toying with the idea of taking a castle from a child's coloring book and turning it into a panto but wanted to check here first - anyone know of a very basic panto with a castle / royalty theme? Thanks!
  18. Hello all! Just registered for my first trip to the NEQF (MQX)!! Going with a fellow longarmer and spending the whole week Hope to meet some of you there!
  19. Oh how I love a great solution!! Just returned from ACMoore with my new little favorite tool - a "Making Memories" craft knife from the scrapbook aisle. It works beautifully, and less than $5!! It also comes with 6 replacement blades that I pray I never have to use!! Vicki - I agree!! Tried tweaking the tension, but it kept talking back so this experience is going in the 'note to self' category!!!
