    That's what I am trying to figure out! The review it has says it makes "daisy" looking flowers..and specifically says she used it on her quilts for top quilting. But does it make one and stop...or make one..then move and make another, move make another? How big flower does it make? If it makes theflowers good, I'd like to have it..that'd be great for FMqIng differently. Maybe a daisy int he center square or something like that. I have given up on trying to do specific designs when FMQ'ing...can't do it on a twin size quilt..to much bulk to be able to move it around to make those designs properly! I thought htis might be a good "cheat sheet" kind of FMQ!

    Here is a video of it in action. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PI9E8JBUj_0

    I'd rather have a circular attachment for my machine.

    It looks very interesting. If I had extra money I might try it.

    i got mine from Nancy's notions, for $12.99, but haven't tried it yet, and if you go to her site, Nancyzieman.com, and find her vedeo's and presser feet, she shows how to use it. i'am anxious to try it, it does look like fun,

    This foot use to come with the vintage Singer machines. I have one of the old ones. It's fun to sew with it. But I haven't found any real use for the sewn circles.
    Got fabric?

    I ordered mine from a shop in Australia about five years ago when I saw an article about it in Machine Embroidery magazine. It will NOT work for quilting since it rotates the fabric to stitch in a small circle about the size of a nickle

    Yes I had one and I used it too. I remember a friend of mine had splashed some bleach on her outfit top and she had little dots on it as a result. I sewed little "flowers" using the foot around all the circles of bleach. Really turned out cute. Then I added some "flowers" to the bottoms and she practically had a whole new outfit. I sold it in a garage sale when I got my first embroidery machine.
    Chocolate is the Answer. Who cares what the question is.

    I have one but haven't use it yet. I got it because I figured it would be like an embroidery thing.
