I got it!!!

My new friend. I can't wait to spend some quality time with you this weekend! (this picture is just one I found online. Mine is still in the box in the back of my car!)

I'm so excited! I have such a wonderful husband! This is just the motivation I need to get my rear end in gear and finish up my Modify Tradition Quilt!


  1. You got it!!! I'm so flippin' excited for you! I want to hear all about it!

  2. Sending you huge congratulations!

    Sniffing a little 'cause I won't even hear about my lil' friend til next week.

    Enjoy. Pamper her. Love her. Name her! lol

  3. I am seriously coveting this right now. :) This is almost exactly the one I want! (I've been eyeing the Juki version.) Congratulations!!!

  4. What kind of machine is this? HAve you tried it for quilting and how did it work out?

  5. Vanessa- It's a Husqvarna Viking Mega Quilter. I LOVE it! Quilting on it is an absolute DREAM!! The machine only has a straight stitch. It's super fast when you have it turned all the way up (speed-wise) 1600 stitches per minute! It free motions beautifully, is straight stitches wonderfully, it can be bought with or hooked up to a quilting frame as well. I don't have a frame for it, but tried it out at the store I bought it at. I think it's considered a "mid-arm" machine. The inner opening area from where the needle it to the machine part is 9"x6" so it handles large quilts very easily! I love it. I'm very happy with my purchase and when it came to shopping for a new machine it was very daunting for me. I don't really sew except for quilting, so the "straight stitch only" isn't an issue for me. I kept my regular machine which has a bunch of different stitches (which I've never used except for zig-zag) so I do have a back up if I ever need it.


I love hearing from comment away!
