    the circular attachment. Have any of you ever tried to use these two tools together? The instructions that come with the circular attachment plainly say that it can be used with any foot, but I'm wondering if that includes the walking foot.

    And yes, I know, I can just hook it all up and give it a try, but I think it might be cheaper to ask first. LOL

    Thanks!

    Dosen't the circular attachment parts hang off to the left of the presser foot? I don't think it goes near the presser foot, so you should be able to use it :D:D:D

    Just in case any of the rest of you want to try this combination, I'll tell you how my experiment fared.

    When I finally got my nerve up to try the two tools together, mechanically all was fine. But what happened was that the weight of the wall hanging sized quilt created enough of a drag on the circular attachment to make it hang up, creating really tiny stitches, despite the efforts of the walking foot to keep things moving along.

    The other thing that happened was that the sliding gauge part of the circular attachment kept moving on me, which distorted those perfect circles I was hoping for.

    Of course, some of this could very well be due to my inexperience with machine quilting. Perhaps tape or something could possibly stop that sliding gauge.

    We shall see.
