    I picked up my new (to me) Bailey's Home Quilting Machine today!! It's a 13" with the stitch regulator and laser for stencils. All on a Little Gracie frame. We have it together and on the frame, but we took a break for dinner. I want to load it tonight with a practice sandwich, so I can get used to it.

    I am staying home from work tomorrow to play with my new baby. I am so excited to be able to quilt my tops quickly and easily. Now I have no excuses for not increasing my quilting productivity!

    to cut down on some frustration - use cotton thread, cotton top, cotton back and cotton batting... (ask me how I know)

    or two layers of flannel or some such (that works great for 'playing' around to learn... (wrong sides together - then you have some lap quilts for nursing homes when finished)

    once you get the hang of it you'll love it....

    That would be perfect - my quilting machine at the lake! It will never happen because it would take up too much room in our cottage but it would be wonderful!

    I wish I could say yes. :) I am just playing around with it. I went back through all the paperwork and manuals and figured what everything is so I really get the most from it. I ordered more thread and practiced a few different things, like FMQ and following a pattern with the laser. If I could figure out how to attach the stylus, I would try that too, but I have to wait til DH gets home. He has more patience than me. If I can't figure it out right away, I go do something else. He's much better than me at detail. I am loving it so far.
