    WOW this is GREAT! And if Kola is like my Caruso - his bed is the bed of the frame. I actually have to be careful that he isn't on (under the layers after I get it set up) it snoozing.

    I have the Hinterberg Stretch frame and I really like it. Congratulations on your new machine! Have fun playing with it. Moving the machine rather than the fabric takes some getting used to, but it sure is fun! If you have problems, just post and there is a lot of help here.

    Is that a Bailey? Mine arrived about two weeks ago. Now just waiting for the Gracie Queen frame to come. Mine is only the 13" model because that is all I could afford at this time, but I figure that is all I need. I only got it to do my own quilts but now a friend of my daughter's wants me to do a couple of quilts for her. I only plan on starting out with the stippling method because I have never machine quilted before and thought that would be the easiest thing for me to do. I know that I could never be as good as Charisma but that is ok for me. Have fun. Can't wait to start using mine.

    I have to laugh about poor Kola and I too suspect that she will be sleeping on the quilts with the sheet cover on the machine. My cat thought it was great fun to sit on my quilts in the oval standup quilt frames and I had to keep a sheet over it too.

    We decided to get this machine for my personal use. And I too am going to use the stippling stitch for a while until I get the hang of it. It has a laser stylist so when I get brave I can get a little fancier with my stitches.

    She seems to sleep where ever she pleases. I am sure the quilt I will be working on at the moment she decides to pass out will be her current "favorite" spot.

    Thanks for all the replies.

    Today, I might actually get a test quilt on the frame. I found a couple "cheater" quilts in my stash closet in the "annex".
    I will let you know how it goes.

    Congratulations on your new baby. Lucky you. Please keep us informed on this new machine as I am sure that a number of us have been thinking of the same one.

    I called Baileys and was pleased to discover that they have a layaway plan! I am looking at the 13' with a stitch regulator. I do not need the frame- I have a Grace Gem Q Pro frame with the aluminum carriage upgrade. This machine will fit it. They are so reasonable in pricing and the machines are lightweight. Thanks for sharing, I had never heard of Baileys before this thread. Now I think I will be able to afford one.

    Congrats on your new set up! And for Koda, you should make a quilted bed to replace her big bed... Just a thought. >giggle<
