I am a new quilter. I have only made one bedsize quilt and sent it out for quiltling. That was a disaster- but another story already told on here. so I am thinking I really want to learn to do my own quilts start to finish. But I am trying to decide between a long arm quilting machine - mid arm machine (looking at a Baileys HQ15) or the brand new Brother sewing machine with the 11" throat, either the Sew/Quilt machine or the Sew/Quilt/Embroidery machine.
I am torn - what if I get a quilting machine and don't like it, what if I get the new Brother and still wish I had a quilting machine.
I am thinking that I have to learn quilting, either way right. If I get the Brother I can also use it for sewing and embroidery if I get the one that does all 3. That would help offset the cost. I know I am atrtracted to the quilts with with simple quilting - straight lines, etc. that is done more easily on the domestic machines. But love it all really.
I also think I would love a quilting machine - but really have no idea, never used one. I am taking a lesson in a few weeks.
But my urgency is this, the new Brother quilt/sew/embroidery machine is on a intro sale and the price goes off on the 18th - need to order by the 15th. then it will be 3000.00 more after that date! Wow, if I want that machine I feel pressure to act now.
Any advice - what do you use I need some pros and cons of each.
