I have two machines. My main machine is a Viking Sapphire 830 that I bought last year. I almost didn't get it because of some bad reviews. But am I glad I did! It's a wonderful machine that has performed for me flawlessly. Since I got it I've made a dozen lap quilts for family and tons of miscellaneous items such as a case for my Kindle.

My second machine is new. It's a Baby Lock Audrey. Very light and small. Perfect for carrying to classes and when we travel in our RV. It's a lovely little girl.

Judy:

Tell me more!  LOL.  I'm thinking I need a lighter machine to pack.

The Baby Lock Audrey is only 11 pounds. It has 58 decorative stitches. The throat isn't big enough for machine quilting but I main.ly use it while traveling or at classes where I'm piecing or machine appliqueing. I do machine quilt smaller items like place mats or some calendar squares I made. I looked at the less expensive small Brother but the Brother was heavier and the small Janome was more expensive. I didn't need anything real fancy, just as light as possible. It cost me $399.00

I'm kinda new here and will post photos of my quilts and projects. I just want to be sure I do it correctly. I'm afraid I'm still a bit confused about where I post things.  Thanks for the Pacific NW tip, I'll check that out. In the meantime, I'll try to get something posted in the show and tell section if I can figure it out.

Honey, don't die and go to Heaven until you've gotten your machine and made good use of it! (grins). I drooled over the machine and went back and drooled some more until my husband finally said "Oh good grief! Buy the machine, I can't stand this anymore". He was happy when one of the first quilts I made on it was a lap quilt for him with crows on it. I'm not sure if he'll appreciate this photo.

I've never seen a crow on a quilt before.  I love it!!  The quilt and your husband's enjoyment of it both make me smile.

Good advertisement of the Audrey machine and how DH appreciates it. Nice quilt! Made me laugh. Don't let DH know that he is being seen all over the world!
