I had been wanting to free motion quilt, but I had not had the best results on my other Brother machine. The throat was to small. So when my husband told me to try this one, (poor guy heard me talk about it for weeks, he's my rock) I tried it. I had a quilt sandwich all ready to go, I did a few sample pieces and they were great so in goes the full/queen size quilt. It was amazing. I got a little to fast from time to time, but I was amazed at the ease. I used a heavy thread on top and bobbin, so I had to change bobbin frequently, (the only real complaint, getting to the bobbin, but by the time I was done with the quilt, I was an old had at it.) LOL You can see on the close up picture I did some thread writing. I was soooo happy with the ease of that too. I have finished another quilt as you go quilt also (the blue). I have 2 other tops done ready to quilt too. I am on a quilting frenzy.
