  1. Have you seen this one by Designs by Vickie ... http://store.designsbyvickie.com/blcr2e2ei.html
  2. I have an older version of the Brother PQ1500SL. It is a mechanical, straight stitch only machine that is fantastic. My machine is probably about 15+ years old and is a workhorse. It never gives me any problems. It is a sturdy machine - not plastic. BabyLock also has a version just like this but is probably a little more expensive. (I got this info from the Brother website) PQ1500SL High Speed Straight Stitch Sewing Machine The PQ1500SL is a dream machine that belongs in the sewing room of every serious quilter and seamstress. It is a high-speed straight stitching machine, sewing up to 1,500 stitches per minute! The PQ1500SL offers an adjustable pin feed mechanism, 4 feed dog settings for maximum fabric control, a knee lifter and bed extension table for quilting, full range foot pressure adjustment and an automatic thread cutter with F.A.S.T. needle threader - a time saving convenience. 1500 stitches per minute 4 Feed Dog height adjustments Built-in knee lifter to easily raise and lower the presser foot, so your hands are free to re-position or remove your fabric Extra-large extension table Automatic thread cutter button Convenient thread tension dial Pin Feed Mechanism allows you to exchange the use of the feed dogs for a single pin that cleanly extends from beneath the machine, moving all layers of your quilt together or moves a delicate velvet without leaving feed dog marks in the nap
  3. Heidi, the twins are absolutely adorable. I'm glad to hear that Landon is doing so good. It definitely looks like the quilts were a big hit!
  4. Beautiful quilt, gorgeous quilting. Thanks for showing us your doodles. I wish my mind could see things like this. I do enjoy seeing how gorgeous quilts can be with great quilting!
  5. Congratulations to the both of you. This quilt is beautiful.
  6. Wow! You work fast. This looks great.
  7. Both these quilts are really cute. I love the quilting and the twins will love them for a very long time. Great job!
  8. vegaslady, a computer system will give you the additional years to continue quilting because you are not stressing your body like you do with FMQ. I have a bad back, bad shoulders, and lots of other aches and pains and having an IQ lets me continue using my Millie. As to the added weight, it is very minimal and you can always easily take the tablet off the machine. See my message in the other post with same topic to see what I had to say re: QuiltPath vs. IQ.
  9. I have used/owned 3 different systems on my Millie- the CompuQuilter, which is no longer made; the QuiltPath; and the IQ. I would definitely recommend the IQ. For me it is a better fit than the QuiltPath as the IQ "thinks" more like I do. I had nothing but problems with the QuiltPath as it was very slow and could not do everything I wanted it to do. Some people are creating absolutely stunning quilts using their QuiltPath systems, but I was not one of them. I fought with it! Check out both systems, try them out, see how they work before you make your purchase. My purchase of the QuiltPath was a very costly mistake for me. There are lots of IQ users in CA and I'm sure you can locate someone to let you try it out. There are also several wonderful IQ groups - both on FaceBook (Friends Using IQ is a great group) and on Yahoo (IntelliQuilter - you don't need to own the system before you can join so you can check out what people are talking about and you can ask questions). There is also a great IntelliQuilter site that has lots of tutorials and demos (iqdemos.com that anyone can visit whether you own the system or not). QuiltPath also has a Facebook site, but you have to already own your system before you can ask or be asked to join. If I had been able to check out this site before I purchased my system, I wouldn't have made my costly mistake because I would have seen that this system and I would not get along. The best advice I can give you is ... DO YOUR OWN HOMEWORK! (And yes, I am shouting this out to everyone!)
