Another thing I love for FMQ is Little Genie Magic Bobbin washers. They sometimes help with the loops on the back. I love my Supreme slider to help move your quilt around easier. I also like my my Machingers gloves. I have also tried using a throat plate for my Janome with a single hole in it instead of the normal slit that comes with the machine. I have a Janome 9700. The washers and the throat plate have pretty much solved the loops on the back for me.
