Growing up in a quilting family, I was surrounded by quilts. As a voracious reader, I loved learning the stories behind each one. Every decision quilters make, from pattern to fabric, is a piece of our story. The Baby Lock Lyric is the perfect machine to help me write my own quilt stories, each one with its own melody.

The Lyric makes it easy to achieve a precise ¼" stitch, and the variety of stitches helps me customize my quilt down to the last detail. When I'm helping others learn to piece their stories, the Lyric is in perfect pitch. An advanced needle threader and quick-set bobbin give beginners the confidence to become quilters-and storytellers-too.

The Advanced Pivoting Feature is another handy tool. It makes it easy to turn corners and curves that don't always follow "the rules" in my modern quilt patterns. I also love the Automatic Fabric Sensor System. It delivers the right amount of tension for my stitches no matter what type of fabric I'm using. And with 300-built in stitches and tons of accessory feet, I never miss a beat when I use the Soprano.
