Product description

Machine Freehand Patterns introduces a new concept in machine quilting called Faux Pantographs. While longarm machine quilters have traditionally used rolled patterns worked by tracing the line with a stylus or laser light, Faux Pantos are worked freehand using the quilt block itself as a guide. Nan's original designs start with simple meanders using basic leaves, simple flowers, and easy geometric shapes. Building upon these easy designs, this pattern book moves on to allover designs using one or multiple motifs, along with designs for sky, clouds, water, and leaves. Also included are a large variety of border designs from simple lace to rows of flowers to leafy swags and feather variations. Quilters seeking a more custom look for their quilts can combine any of the dozens of quilting patterns designed for specific blocks, setting triangles, and odd-shaped blocks.
