And then I just discovered this:
The Babylock Tiara. Now, name not withstanding, since I'm the last one you'd call "Princess!,"isn't this a dream?! It has 16b beautiful inches of quilting space!! It's essentially a long-arm quilter for people like me not ready to devote an entire room to a longarm machine! Now, it's still pricey, similar to what you'd pay for a longarm on KSL classifieds (or your similar local online classified venue). But I think I'm in love! One machine JUST for sewing and piecing and one JUST for quilting! Each built for their own purpose!
Any thoughts from the great beyond about what machines you use for quilting, what size throat you have, and what you recommend?
