Default Best free motion quilting foot for Bernina 440 or 550

I have a Bernina 550 and am looking to purchase a free motion quilting foot. I have BSR, but would like to have a separate foot for free motion quilting. What are you using?

You can use the regular darning foot that has the spring in it. Mine came as a regular foot in the case of accessories. It has the #6 or #9 depending on how you look at it.

Thanks Tartan. I wish it had come with my 550. I'd gladly trade the button hole foot that came with it for the darning foot. I'll do some searching to see what I find.

Back when I FMQ on my bernina, I preferred the open toe model. It gave better visibility.

It does look like a good one. I'll look for it. Thank you for the tip.
