Have you seen the machine that makes stitches like hand quilting? I was so amazed,it only draws thread from a bobbin no upper thread on it, I don't remember where I saw it, or the make. But I saw video, guess it was on Fons&Porter show.

Yes, but I think that's all it does. Personally I couldn't justify the cost.

There are regular machines such as Pfaff that do that stitch. you will have to check with your dealer in case it is already on yours.

I think you can do that with any machine by using invisible thread on top, regular thread in bobbin and crank up the tension so it pulls up the bobbin thread. I usually use black in the bobbin.

Berninas have a stitch that is to look like hand quilting.

Here is a review.

I agree with whoever called it a one-trick pony. Not enough bang for my buck.
