    Red face Sewing machine for quilting on unlimited budget

    I am pie in the sky right now. If money were no object which machine would you buy? Now don't say the Bernina 820 just because it is the most expensive, but maybe a machine you have sewn on and desire!!! I've always had a thing for the Viking Se, but would like a bigger throat. Saw the Janome Horizon, haven't heard too much. Tell me please.

    I have the horizon and love it. If you dealer has a good used one and your trust your dealer that is a good way to go to save a little.

    If money were no obstacle I would buy a Bernina 830, the Bernina quilting frame (which I have) and Quilt Motion! Then I could do everything my heart desires to do from embroidery to quilt assembly to quilting - long arm style - free motion or computer driven. I'd think I was in heaven!

    I'd get a longarm and skip a new sewing machine. I'd get the largest Innova.

    Why buy just one? I would buy as many different brands as I had room for.

    I have different machines for different tasks. I don't think I could choose just one to have. I have Bernina, Brother, Janome, and Singer. I use them all.
    Got fabric?

    Brother Quattro, Brother Isadore or Babylock Ellisimo wouldn't know which to choose since they are very similar except in the embroidery designs they have on them

    I need more information about the type of quilting you like to do. Piecing? Free motion work? Do you quilt large king size quilts or tend to stick to small quilt?

    Id get the new Bernina B750QE. It has a 10 throat space and auto thread cutter. A computerized machine that still allows control of some auto functions is nice, and its not crazy huge. Ive always been a Pfaffie, but I may convert to Bernina.
