If you love to free-motion machine quilt, but struggle to fit your project in the small throat space of a domestic sewing machine, you’ll love the HQ Sweet Sixteen!

Sixteen inches of throat space gives you room to craft even a king-size quilt. The powerful motor quilts with ease and stitches up to 1,800 stitches per minute. Choose your three favorite top speed settings on the easy-to-use color touch screen, and let the machine remember them.
