I have been so excited!! I actually bought this at the AQS show in Chattanooga about a month ago! Then came some surgery and lots of time not being able to go get it. Finally!!!! I got it Friday and have been slowly getting everything set up and ready. It has been harder without my chief helper around to do the heavy work, but I managed to find help.
I think I got a good deal. I got the Babylock Tiara II, mat for the top, the table, the bobbin winder, the stitch regulator, and the 3 year gold warranty program for roughly $1000 more than a used machine without regulator, tables, etc. I feel pretty good about it. There were several I'd rather have if I were filthy rich, but this fits my budget for now.
This is the back of my of my Halloween quilt, HocusPocusville. Since the name is quilting confessions, I'll admit the awful truth. I didn't have enough of the backing fabric I wanted so I just ordered 2 more yards. Well guess what? Still not enough. So I took some left over fabric from the front and made a basic design. I tell myself it has more interest this way. (Yes, I do realize I'm full of it!!) Wish I'd had enough.
