Maybe getting a new sewing machine - input please

  I've sewn for many, many years.  All of my machines have been inexpensive, basic machines.  I've decided to finally take the plunge and spend a little bit more in hopes of being able to do machine quilting in addition to regular sewing.  I would be interested in your views on your machine, what you like about it and what you wish was different. 

  My budget is under $1500, the lower the better for my cheap wallet.  LOL

  I like sturdy machines but not so heavy that it will become a problem to lift and move.

  The main thing for now, though, is being able to do regular sewing plus machine quilting.  I'm not into embroidery but if that type of machine is best then I could go that direction.

  Any help would be greatly appreciated!
