    I am free motion CHALLENGED! Just can't seem to improve. Has anyone tried the Sliders? Here's one at LaPierre Studio Says tacky-back Teflon sheet grips your machine’s sewing bed so your quilts moves effortlessly as you free-motion quilt.
    $29.95 freemotionslider.com

    Seems a little expensive.

    It's worth every penny! I don't quilt without it anymore.

    I got one from Daystyle designs a couple of months & it makes a huge difference for me.

Cut a hole for the needle and you have the same thing and I am not sure they are no slippery-er? They are brown instead of white but you don't need to see through them anyway. I use three to completely cover the main part of my sewing cabinet and it is absolutely great when FMQ."

    Do you tape them down with masking tape?

    I keep forgetting I have one until after I've wrestled with the quilt. I need to figure a way to store it in plain view. I bought it right before I went to Austin to babysit my grandson 2 years ago. Found it again when I was organizing all my quilting stuff when I came back home full-time.

    I bought the "Sew Slip" b/c it was more reasonable, so don't know about the freemotion slider. Using such a thing makes a HUGE difference in quilting.
    Maybe a baking sheet is ok as well, but you have to tape it down with double sided tape, I guess.

    Are there any brands or styles that are better than others?
