    You can also use a peice of wood at the foot pedel to only let it go down so far. also practice FMQ at slow speed and you will get better!!!!!

    Many brands have both of those features. Wal*Mart carries many styles of Brother that has these features. I plan to buy the SQ 9000 next time I'm there. It's $200.

    If you are doing FMQ (free motion quilting) without a foot, just the darning type foot, you need your machine to go fast and your hands to move the fabric slow. If you are trying to do a FMQ type design in the borders using your walking foot I know I can't help. The walking foot always restricted my site of where I wanted to stitch so rarely used it. Then I bought a Pfaff that has the walking foot built in (it is IDT) and that is placed behind the foot and doesn't hinder site of where the needle is going.

    I just ordered a Brother SQ9000, it has speed control, needle up/down and can drop feed, some simple alphabet embroidery, and many decorative stitches. You can also sew without the foot control with the start/stop button, which from my understanding, is helpful in FMQ. I haven't gotten it yet (waiting on the mail man!!! hurry up!), but as soon as I do, I'm getting a darning foot to start working on fmq.
