I'll be keeping an eye on it but I'm also not a big fan of small pieces, so I can't commit if that's where it's headed. Looking at the Free Patterns page... some of those squares look so very tiny....

I bought a Brother XR3774 for around $100 2 years ago. It had a walking foot and a quilting foot and even if it only lasts me 5 or 6 years, I'd consider it worth it. Would a $1000+ sewing machine be...

Oh, it looks like they've got a Valentine's Day wall-hanging size one as well, for those who can't do one right now/can't commit to the full quilt size.
