Baby Lock mid arm quilting machine

Does anyone have a Baby Lock Crown Jewel? Do you like it and would you recommend it?


I'm putting this out there in hopes that one of our readers can make a personal recommendation. If you've used this machine please do share your experience!

Thank you in advance!

In the meantime, you might find it beneficial to join the Home Quilting Systems group for family.

This group is made up of quilters using all kinds of mid-arm and long-arm quilting machines. You'll probably get more advice than you need, (everyone has a machine that is their favorite) but it will be from users. And possibly users that have used more than one type of machine.

The best advice I can give is generic...try as many machines as you can in person...regional and national shows always have vendors with machines to try. These vendors are now starting to show up at our local quilt shows, too!

Look for a machine with a dealer near to you...good for both lessons and when problems occur. Don't forget to take the lessons. They'll shorten your learning curve.

Good luck to you!

Baby lock
by: Terri

I have the Babylock Crown Jewel on the Pearl frame and I love it.

I recently took some longarm quilting classes at the quilt show in Paducah, Kentucky and we used the Handi Quilter.... It was exactly the same as my Babylock. When I mentioned this to the instructor I was told that Handi Quilter makes the Crown Jewel for Babylock.

Everyone I've met that has a Handi Quilter loves it...
