This month is October and my studio has quilted a lot of Halloween quilts. They are so much fun. One customer, Bev B. asked, "Can you put spiders on my quilt?" I said "Sure"--posititve that I could find a pantograph with the thread paths already available.
After checking all of my usual sources, I could not find any pantographs with spiders...so I played around for half an hour or so....and ta da! Not only did I figure out how to create pantographs into PDF files, but I also created a custom one for this customer--Pumpkins and Spiders. Her quilt was darling with this done edge-to-edge.

Pumpkins and spiders Pantograph
Spiders in the Spider Web!
This is how the Pantograph looked all over the quilt top squares.
Because I now can create custom pantographs, if a customer chooses to use one I created, I will not charge the $5.00 royalty fee because I'm the author!
