pantovision in Gone Quilting...Chat About Anything Posted November 26, 2011 · Report reply Originally posted by yankiequilter Panto Vision looks like a terrific new product. If we can follow a panto with a laser we should be able to follow the design on a screen with a cursor. I called ABM earlier this week and spoke with Kandi, however she couldn't answer my questions and said she would have Heidi call me. Heidi was out of the office so I haven't spoken with her yet. A few of the things that I would like to know, and if anyone gets the answeres please post them: - I believe that the panto can be stretched but can the size be input to the software? Inches of length and width Yes, you tell the program what size your quilt is and that size shows up on a graph on the screen. You can then choose your panto and or blocks and layout the entire quilt to fit those dimensions. - What is the maximum size panto the system will take? I'm wondering if a whole cloth design can be used in it. You can layout anything that you desire. Wholecloth, 1/2 cloth, blocks, borders, savings. Choosing designs that are panto friendly is key to having quilting success. Open forgiving feathers will give you better success then formal feathers for instance. - Can the panto be rotated 90 degrees which would enable its use on a border without rotating the quilt Yes. You would lay out the vertical border and proceed to quilt to your frame specifications. You would then advance the quilt and pick up the remainder just like you do when you advance your quilt using paper patterns. - An approximate delivery date for APQS. Now that we're excited about this product we want to know about how l long we have to wait. As soon as I know anything I'll let you know. We are working very hard to accomidate all makes and models.
