Default Sewing machine advice for wheelchair user

Hi

I am a wheelchair user with no use of my legs at all. I have recently started quilting and am currently doing it by hand. However, I have really "caught the bug" and want to progress onto bigger projects. I have decided to start looking into sewing machines but am not able to use a foot pedal. A couple of questions arise, can you quilt on a sewing machine just using one hand to quide the quilt? Does anyone know of any special adaptions I could get to make a foot pedal possible to use with my hands?

Thanks so much for your help!
