The Three Pillars of Building a Profitable & Sustainable Longarm Quilting Business - FREE video

Favorite Pantographs for Winter Holiday Quilts

Each month we provide our League members with a new lesson aimed at helping them in their business. This month I sat down with three of our members to talk about the logistics involved in running a longarm quilting business during the busy winter holidays, communicating with clients, and planning for time off. I had a great time chatting with Lilo Whitener-Fey of Trace Creek QuiltingNancy Calhoun of Fancy Schmancy Nancy Longarm Quilting, and Tia Curtis of Tia Curtis Quilts, and while the recorded conversation is only available to our League members, we thought it would be fun to share a list of some of their favorite winter holiday pantograph designs with everyone here on our blog.

Below are nine of Lilo, Nancy, and Tia's favorite pantos to use on winter holiday quilts, listed in alphabetical order. Special thanks to League members Ashley Perkins of Hen House QuiltingMelonie Morrow of Quilty Lab Creations, and Shelly Moore of Ma Tante Quilting for providing additional photos for this post.

We tried to be as accurate as possible with crediting the designer(s) of each pantograph and makers of each project. Each bolded pantograph title is linked to a retail listing. Please email us at [email protected] if you see any info that needs correcting.

Without further ado, let's check out the designs!
