    I've done it on a Pfaff 2170. I'll use the decorative stitches. I also have books of quilting designs. I can digitize, so I digitized quite a few and use them on patterned fabric for raggies. I've got the machine -it can work for me.

    I have a huaqvarna viking ruby. For Christmas I made 7 quilts in 6 months and only used the embroidery machine to do the quilting. Good luck.

    I have a brother se400 that is a combination embroidery/sewing. That's my only machine and it works fine. I just take off the embroidery attachment when quilting.

    Everything shown here is wonderful. I took a class and did a small baby quilt, but it sure didn't look as great as these.

    Quilting with the embroidery machine is great. You don't need a stabilizer at all. Embroidery Library has many designs for quilting on the machine. Try it, you'll like it.

    I have a Bernina 165. I've done tons of free motion quilting on it. Just remove the embroidery module and you have a top quality sewing machine!! Enjoy!!

    I machine embroidered the entire runner on my viking
