I took a class at my local quilt shop, Common Threads Quilt Shoppe in North Liberty Iowa. It was all about Pantographs. Pantographs are designs that you can follow to sew with the longarm machine.
You attach a little laser pointer to the machine and align the paper pantograph pattern and away you go. Well more or less anyways. It is a little more difficult to follow than you would think but is another option for quilting designs.
