feedback on Babylock quest sewing machin
Hello! I was looking for a new sewing machine to make my quilts on. I have had a love affair with Janome (1st serious mahine) fgr many years and also have a Bernina 1630. My favorite machine died and left me heartbroken…so I bought the Bernina 1630 (used from a reputable dealer and I knew the previous owner) but it never held the same place in my heart as my Memory Craft 8000. The straight stitch on the Bernina 1630 never comes out like it did on my Memory Craft 8000. I didn’t want a fancy bells and whistles machine since I’m not into embroidery just wanted a machine to piece and machine quilt my quilts on that was smooth and quiet.
Overcome with purchase lust I just bought a Babylock Quilter’s Quest machine (brand new & at a real hot price) but after sewing on it most of yesterday evening it, it is just so noisy and the the free motion quilting was jerky and dis-jointed with the darning foot that comes with the machine. I did take it for a test drive before I purchased it, but I don’t remember this from before. Anybody have any feedback about this particular machine? With an eye for piecing quilts and machine (free motion too) quilting what do y’all recommend? I am looking ot spend about $2K max price.
