I have been considering purchasing a new machine. I own a Janomme w/very little extras, some dec stitches. It does a great job for piecing my quilts. I am trying now to do my own quilting and my machine doesn't seem to be interested in that job!!! Sooo, I have looked at the Viking "Mega Quilter" that Joanne has on sale for $799. It does only quilting (& straight stitching). It comes with a walking foot and extension table but the manual does not mention "free motion" quilting. Does anyone have this machine and do you like it for quilting? I also looked at the Singer Confident Quilter--$399. It will also do everything and had some nice dec stitches, althought not the heavy duty quality of the Viking. Any opinions that could help me decide? Would appreciate the advice.
