    first you have to lower the feed dogs. my machine does the rest I set it to #4 also. I find you have to have your thread horizontal I use a thread holder on the back of my machine. I would use the finest thread to start with. I would recommend using silk #100 use this also in the bobbin you will be amazed.

    I know this post is old but just Incase it helps others, I just did free motion quilting on my brother 400se. I lowered my feed dog, removed the foot exposing just the needle, did straight stitch and minimized my stitch length to .2 which is as low as you can go and it worked fine. Key thing also is to use your auto sew at either medium or fast. Going slow you tend to hesitate with your motion, unable to create a flowing motion.

    I started quilting using the darning foot. That's the circular foot.. Walking foot goes in straight lines Yes? Darning foot moves where your hands guide it.. I can only handle baby quilt with my machine doesn't take large. More practice is for me..

    Welcome from OHIO! I don't have a Brother machine, but I would suggest you watch some videos on youtube about FMQ. There are several very helpful ones there.
