How to Quilt Nested Pantographs with Quilter's Creative Touch 5

Updated! Nested Pantographs for QCT5 Beginner PDF

This PDF has been updated to the latest version of QCT5 and has steps slightly different from the tutorial below.

The Pantographs system works differently between the Quilter's Creative Touch Beginnings and Pro levels of the software. This PDF is specifically written for the Beginnings version, which only allows you to quilt two rows.

Watch this tutorial to see how to quilt perfectly spaced nested pantographs on your quilts. I also did a partial row for the top and bottom edges and showed this as well.

Note: I do think nested pantos are more challenging to understand and quilt evenly! For your easiest first experience, try a non-nested pantograph with the size of the rows dividing evenly into the quilt. Yes, I'm working on a video on this too!
