    So I did it . . .

    having some fun with my Babylock Crown Jewel! It's been quite an adventure! Bought it from a store 2 hrs away, picked it up, set it up, and now I'm learning! The tutorial for QuiltMotion is pretty good. On my next quilt/practice sandwich, I will play around with it. Taking some on-line classes this month. This lap quilt is for donation and is stitch-in-the-ditch .

    Great set up. Good for you. I would not have room for it, I'm glad you and others do have.

    Made me laugh. Just love the idea of machines just hanging around.

    Have fun and post pics of finished quilts.

    I have the same setup. Have had it for a year and a half. Baby Lock offers a class in St. Louis (which is not too far away from you). It is well worth the cost - 4 days 8AM to 8PM with Kay Capps Cross. My class was included in the deal when I bought my setup at the Cincinnatti Quilt show. Baby Lock found me a roommate so that I did not have to pay the full cost. Then, when repairmen were banging on the floor above us, she complained and got us a day free.
    I came home with alot of knowledge and felt very comfortable with my machine.

    Congratulations on your new baby! Have you named her yet?? You're going to enjoy all the aspects that she can do. Quilt Motion is awesome to work with too. There's a lot to learn, but you'll have fun learning!

    Enjoy- both the machine quilting and the view! what a nice set up- your room seems really peaceful! may I ask a question? I am going to paint my room and liked your wall color. May I ask what color is it and perhaps what brand? thank you!

    I don't have a room in my little house that will accommodate this beauty - maybe in my next life!! Enjoy your beautiful new toy!

    I don't have a room in my home that I could set one of these up in. So I just drool over the pictures
    Freedom is costly and quilting keeps us busy...
