Brother Machines with a built in "Design Center"
These machines have scan & edit/fill features that allow you to quilt within a space you define.
Smaller machines can quilt too!
You'll see the machine stitching and the scan of the image on the machine's touch screen
Most brands of machines can fill a fixed shape like a square or circle. BUT. . . these Brother machines allow you to trace around a shape and then fill it with built in stitch "fills"

The Brother Quilting series of machines are great for decorative stitching! They have the power and throat space you want and need.
Stitches - The more the merrier when it comes to number of stitches. And, size matters!
Sideways Sewing - Many Brother machines can sew sideways making stitches over 1 1/4" wide for borders, sashing & quilting.
Single stitch allows you to set the machine to stitch just one motif at a time. Great for going around curves or "filling in" if you need just a little more quilting.
Stop lock tells the machine to complete the motif it is currently stitching and lock off.
Throat space is the space from the right of the needle to the machine. It can range from 4" to almost 12". It is much easier to turn your projects while stitching with a larger space. At least 6" is desirable.
Power of machine and feed dogs is important to properly form decorative stitches and for the fabrics to follow through the machine evenly.

You can't see the inside!
Be sure to have your machine cleaned to keep it in tip top shape. This machine "looks" clean in the areas you can see. But, as you can see, the inside needs to be cleaned and lubricated to keep it in great shape.
