Interlocking Overall Designs
When creating pantos or overall / edge to edge designs for longarm systems you can't just repeat designs: that would result in straight rows of designs where the empty unquilted space between the rows will immediately show. Even worse: straight unquilted areas between rows will cause folds in your quilt.
In the Interlocking Class during our Art and Stitch Retreats you will learn how to create nicely interlocking designs. We will show how to use templates, but we will start with the easy stuff as shown in the two images below. It's the Arcs Contour block in the Art and Stitch Library, made repeatable by adding an extra curve in the middle (how to do that is part of the class too).
The first image is a simple repeat with an interlocking setting, then connected. The second image uses the same Arcs block, but repeated with a different technique that makes it a more interesting design.

Loes, having fun working on the classes :)
