She's beautiful!

I have a new baby! a Brother PQ1500S. She has been long awaited!...years. Can't wait to send time with her. I am SOOO excited!
Took a machine quilting class yesterday at Quilters' Corner. Had a good low-key pleasant teacher and 5 eager classmates. Did not have the new machine at that time and make it with daughter's little Singer basic from Christmas 2005 (when she was 11 years old)! I think I can do this machine quilting samples were pitiful but practice will be the key. The only kind of machine quilting I have ever wanted to do was quilting that will look like hand quilting motifs. Free-handed feathers is my main goal, then other free hand designs to compliment the Paintbrush and other nature designs that I may do. With the art quilt direction I am enjoying, hand quilting is completely out of the question due to the composition of the pieces, I would need hands of steel! So, I'm in, we'll see how it goes!
Pictures to follow...

Wow......where did this come from !
Totally out of the blue you finally get a reward for all the hard work you do and get that machine you've dreamed about !

Can't wait to hear what you do with her. I want to learn to quilt pebbles or know what I mean?
