I love having a big board for pressing. It’s nice to lay out blocks too.
I wasn’t in love with my Babylock Jane when I first got it but now I am and it’s nice to have both machines set up in the sewing room. I tend to do more piecing on the Elna but a quilt with nothing but half square triangles will have some bulky seams and the Jane handles bulk much better than the Elna does.
Having good tools makes quilting more enjoyable!
