What Is The Best Quilting Machine For A Beginner?

 This is my question to the sewing experts out there in the quilting community.  I am wanting to purchase a free-motion quilting machine that is around $200.00 and is easy to use.  I was looking at the Brother CS7000i quilt and sewing machine that is around $199.00.  I've read the reviews on it and many are saying there are issues with the bobbin and the thread underneath bunches up on them.


Others are saying read the manual carefully several times so that you know exactly how to do the bobbin.  It seems that the bobbin is the biggest issue with this machine.  

What quilting machine do you have?

What issues do you have with your brand machine?

Do you have a Brother quilting machine?  If so, which one?

Head on over to my YouTube channel and see the handmade quilts that I have made all with the slow stitch hand method.
