    I was thinking of getting one of these and I went with a Bailey's 17" and Gracie Frame for $2,500 instead. I love it! 11" is nice, but 17" is better. lol

    I've got to go against the flow here. You can both sew and quilt on the Bernina which, in my opinion, is the best machine available. My Bernina is around 25 years old and still sews like a dream. You can only quilt on a longarm. If you mainly make baby quilts, they are small enough to handle easily in the harp space of the Bernina. Although you can certainly quilt a baby quilt on a longarm, you will have to find house space for a frame and machine that has the capability to quilt up to kingsize quilts.

    you said machine right? you didn't say frame. so what you're talking about is really the 11" throat space, if i get it right.

    if you can do the baby quilts on the machine you already have, do you really need a different one? it would be convenient, but not really necessary. i'd save up for a machine with a larger throat on a frame. you'll be happier.
