Susan brought in this cheerful, beautifully pieced and apliqued quilt to finish today. She is using the Tying the Knot pantograph. This pantograph is very beginner friendly and is mostly used on little girl quilts. This will be so sweet when it is finished. ‪#‎apqsquilting ‪#‎lovetoquilt ‪#‎glidethread‪#‎urbanelementzpantographs
