    Vintage Motif, I love that quilt. Very pretty. Is that a darning foot for a vintage machine? Do they all look that way? That's a pretty neat foot.

    No, it is not a darning foot for vintage machines. This is the foot that comes with the Davis Vertical Feed machines. This is a walking foot, but designed to work with the Davis VF, or in this case Davis New Vertical Feed.

    Here is a video of a Davis NVF machine (one like mine) in action.

    Notice that the machine doesn't have feed dogs and that the foot moves the fabric.
    These machines are awesome to quilt with and attach bindings. And the machine handles quilting flannel without any problems.

    I own two of these machines. The difference in the two machines is the tension area. They take standard needles.

    I want a DVF baaaaaad!
    I watched the video; the needle moves the fabric not the foot.
    I am going to work on a new way to put on bindings with a binding folder. As any one tried it?

    Monica, you are lucky to own two Davis VF machines, is the one a HC? I can't see the crank from the photo? I too love my DVF, but mine is the older model - 1886 - and it doesn't take regular needles! The older DVF machines use the Davis Longs or Boye 10 needles, which are pricey but available on E-Bay!

All quilting is done on my Davis NVF.

    Monica, I love the quilt! The stitches look perfect, is that your Davis Vertical Feed's stitches? If so, you have that machine adjusted perfect!

    I am so excited. This is why I love this board. The problem is not with my thread, which makes me happy since it was my first big spool purchase. I changed the needle AGAIN. I had the last one in correctly, but apparently it had a burr thingy in it. Needles were pretty expensive, so I hate losing one right off the bat, but I'm glad the problem is gone. I even did some stitching on the actual quilt and have had great success! WooHoo! I am back in business!
    Yippeeeeeee! Isn't it a good feeling when things get sorted out? I felt the same way when I finally figured out why my 319w was skipping stitches!
