    What quilting gadget do you want that you don't have?

    I was looking at the thread about the quilting gadgets that went bust and got to thinking about what I would like.

    I would like the Accuquilt Go -- have not taken the plunge because of the $$ and the room it takes. I am tempted, though.

    How about you?

    I'd love a long arm or even a machine with a wider throat but it's not in the stars for me. I'm ok with dreaming about it

    Bernina 830. Bwaaaaahahahaha! Ok, on to something realistic. I would like to try that FMQ halo, but can't bring myself to buy it without checking it out first.

    I tried the Halo at a quilt show but it is not for me. Not enough room inside the Halo to quilt without stopping and repositioning continually, and I need to have my fingers on the quilt for the best control for me. What is my dream item? A Babylock Symphony (no money) and a sit down midarm (no room or money :-) ). I'll be happy with what I've got-I'm fortunate to have a dedicated quilting space (well except for when my grandson is sleeping in it 3 -4 nights a week.) All of his stuff is in the bedroom he shares with his Dad and its not a permanent situation so it's good.

    A long arm! I am dreaming but I have two babies (4 and 2) so that's long ways away. Also debating if I need and accuquilt go....

    Me toooo! I had EQ5 years ago when I thought I wanted to quilt, but then I started having babies and that got put on the back burner, lost in one of our moves.

    My bday isn't until October, but I'm thinking it might be a good idea for Mother's Day! My dh has skipped out on so many holidays over the years, I might have to cash in on that this year, lol.

    I would love a longarm..but can not justify it. So I will wish for the log cabin accuquilt die and the alpha die.

    I would LOVE either a HQ SweetSixteen or a Babylock Tiara (both are 17" sit down mid-arm machines) and every one of Deb Tucker's rulers.

    It's not a gadget, but I'd love a machine with a larger throat that would stay on my quilt frame. Also, am planning on buying the new foot that makes sewing curves easier - don't remember it's name but it's on my list!!!

    I would love Deb Tucker's rulers too. She has some good ones. I mostly want the wing clippers. I would love the Janome Horizon, but I already have a good Brother 1500, Bernina 180, and a Singer 221. They all still do great, so I can't justify the Janome.

    I have often thought of a long arm, but do not have the space, money, or expertise. I will continue to hand quilt, and MAYBE someday get up the courage to take a top to a professional.

    I hope you get your EQ7. There is so much you can do. My sister has it, but rarely uses it. I have EQ5, and am very happy with it.

    EQ BlockBase (the CD with all the block patterns). If it seems I will keep quilting regularly, then maybe I will spring for it this fall. It isn't that costly, but a person could spend that money on fabric instead .....

    I want a Janome Herizon. I need to save for it. A couple of my friends have one and they love it. I have a Janome but the Horizon has a larger opening. I saw a sit-down mid-arm at quilt show. that was kind of interesting, but I'm not sure about it. I would have to try it. An LQS near me offers a 1 hour class on her long-arm, limited to 3 people in the class so everyone gets time to sew. Then she will rent time on the machine so you can do your own quilts. That may be a way for me to go.

    I want the 9 or 10 degree ruler. I'd like to make one of those spiral quilts. I'll buy it one of these days.

    I'm considering the Accuquilt and a long arm or mid-arm, but I would need somewhere to put it. I'm also put off by the cost.

    I would love to have a mid or long arm. Gadget wise, I am with so many others, I would love a Go! cutter. I just got a new to me Singer Futura SEQS 6000, that I am still exploring. I love it so far. My dh is determined to get me a Featherweight one day, he knows I would love one, and he is a sweety.

    Every time I see something new I want it but with a limited sewing space I have to pass up most of them. I would love a long arm machine and frame. Someday maybe. For now it's limited to specialty rulers.

    Quilting is my therapy
