    When I started quilting 12 years ago, i didn't own a sewing machine, and I made the first one all by hand, a queen size made out of just 2pieces of material, matched for the front, and the same for the back. I turned the edges to the back and hand stitched them down before I even had it quilted :shock: :lol: :lol: It was blue with lots of bird houses and flowers . I quilted around all the items in it. It is still in use today in my daughter's den, and she wouldn't take nothing for it. :-D I have learned a lot since then. We had 2 sons getting ready to leave for College, and I wanted to make them a quilt to take with them. My DH went to walmart, and came home with a cheap Singer sewing machine. And I have done all of my piecing on it since then, I love hand quilting, and will always quilt special quilts by hand, but have been wanting a machine that I could quilt with. I had been going on line and looking, and making notes.
    DH stole the # of the one I liked best, in our small budget, and ordered it for me :shock: I was soooo surprised Christmas morning! :-D It is a Brother *Project Runway, limited addition*.
    It has 13 different feet, including one for quilting, and the feed dogs drop, so hope to learn to FMQ. It also has the double needle for those fancy stitches. :D :lol: there is a drawer in the arm, when you remove it, for all the feet and other thingys. And the lid has storage in it also. I have read the book through once, and am reading it again. Want to know as much as I can before starting using it. There are lots of Fancier and more Expensive machines out there, but this one is just perfect for me!

    I am so blessed



    :-D

    What a wonderful man that DH of yours! I know you are going to enjoy your new machine and I can't wait to see what you make with it. Have you named it yet?

    Ninnie, congrats on your new machine. What impresses me most is that you read the instrucion book and are reading it for a second time!!! Have had my machine for 20 + years and only look at my book when I am stumped!!! LOL
