Mid Arm machine with feed dogs?

Is there such a thing as a mid arm machine that you can use to piece the quilt? I don't have room for a regular mid arm that is only for free motion, but would love one that would do both. Thanks.

I like to keep it as uniform as possible: cotton fabric, cotton thread. I do use Warm and Natural, because I also thought it was 100% cotton, until I read the label.
