I'd love to by your friend! I was reading your profile, I quilt on my normal sewing machine too. A couple of years ago I bought a Brother machine that came recommended for quilting (plus it does lots of fancy embroidery style stitches), it now spends most of the time in its box, I use a very basic Singer, sturdy and trusty. What type of machine do you have?
