5 of 5 Great pattern July 2, 2021
Reviewer: Jo Sunderman from Cheyenne, WY United States  
I used this panto on quilts for kids. The nesting can be overlapping making sizing fast and easy. It stitched faster than hand guided meandering. My new “go to” for Star Wars or Harry Potter or Star Trek type quilts.

5 of 5 Excellent design, not for newbies January 2, 2021
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Seattle, WA United States  
This design is not for a novice user who just clicks “repeat” in their software. But it works flawlessly if you take the time to connect point-to-point on the horizontal, and to manually adjust the between-row gap to cause the 2nd row to overlap the first (as indicated in the design photo) so that there are 4 overlap points.

One useful feature of this design is that the spaces between the lines/loops have some gentle variation, which means that it is very forgiving if you do not get your start point just right when stitching the 2nd row, or if there is a small shift in your quilt due to some areas already being stitched. This small variations are within tolerance of the design’s all-over variations, so it disguises any imperfections as being normal.

5 of 5 Looks great! August 7, 2017
Reviewer: Lisa Yarost from FORT WORTH, TX United States  
This design runs smoothly and quickly. I increased the overlap a bit, which closed up the open space on the upper right. It looks great!

3 of 5 has gaps, hard to line up July 29, 2016
Reviewer: Marilyn Lewis from Vacaville, CA United States  
This isn't one of my favorite designs.  It looks like it would be great because of the curved lines, but if you look at it you will see that in the upper right side, there is a big space that isn't filled when you overlap the design from one row to the next.  There are other designs out there that are much better at filling the quilt.
