    This is also what I do and it helps me a lot.
    I have never had a walking foot to use on my sandwiches.
    Just a lot of determination!:lol:
    My new machine came with a walking foot. I tested it on a small sandwich and it was soooooo nice. !!!!!!
    Good luck.

    Nothing beats a walking foot. You can get everything right in the "sandwich" , pin like crazy , have built the perfect "sandwich" and the machine can still "feed" the different layers through a regular foot at differnent rates causing the pleats, puckers and disappointment.
    If you have not invested in a walking foot ... maybe its time ! It was a life changing gismo!

    I love basting spray. It keeps everything in place as I quilt. I do still baste around the edges though. If anything slips it will be there.

    I am wondering if anyone has a walking foot for a Pfaff Holly 1200 quilter you would like to sell?

    My friend got one for her mom for Christmas. I think it was about $100. I bet you can buy it from the same dealer who sold you your Hobby Quilter.

    also look on eBay. I don't know anything about Pfaff, but someone here might know- alot of machines use generic feet just fine. I would post in the classified section that you are looking for one...

    I thougth Pfaff machines had a built in "differential feed" so a walking foot would not be neccessary. Do check if you model has this feature. Check owners manual. If it does then we need to talk about other solutions to your problem.

    My Pfaff Quiltstyle has the buil in integrated dual feed walking foot. The Pfaff Hobby Quilter has a separate walking foot that is an optional accessory.
