My Sewing Machine

My Singer Confidence Quilter

Enough playing around, time to get back to quilts!

When I first started quilting, I was using a basic machine my husband had gotten me as a wedding present. It was a small Singer (Inspiration model, to be exact) and it worked just fine. For Christmas 2010, my in laws gifted me my current sewing machine, a Singer Confidence quilter. It has about one hundred different stitches and a mess of other neat features, including a longer arm that I can stick on there for easier quilting.

These small Singers do great for sewing the quilt tops, but I have to admit… when it comes to quilting anything larger than a baby quilt, they’re a pain in the rear! I can’t wait until I can get one of these bad boys, but I guess I need someplace to PUT it first!

What kind of sewing machine do you use for your quilting? I’ve noticed that a lot of quilty bloggers use Berninas or Brothers. How about you? Do you send your quilts out to be quilted and just make the quilt tops?

  1. Hey! This is the machine I use for all my piecing and non-quilty sewing. I love it for that work. It actually pieces much nicer than my Viking Sapphire, but the Sapphire is a lot better for doing FMQ since it has a longer well. Kinda funny that a little “cheapo” machine outperforms the expensive one on piecing.

    • Yes that’s my only complaint about this machine, you would think they would have given it a bigger well since it is being marketing as a Quilter’s machine! :uhh: Otherwise I’m very happy with it. Thanks for visiting!
