do you do free- motion quilting with a walking foot or the reg. foot on your machine ?

you can only use the walking foot for straight line quilting, otherwise use your darning foot. it's the round one

I am guessing you are talking about John Flynn. He sells plans for those machine frames on his website. He uses PVC pipes and sells the end things to keep them together. I had the oppoturnity to meet him and attend one of his lectures. He passed his quilts around while he spoke. I couldn't believe what beautiful work he does! He was an engineer who designed bridges and took up hand quilting when his wife showed an interest in the art. He has also designed a hand quilting frame, also available on his web site. Both his hand and machine quilting are amazing. I would suggest you do a google search for his site, as I do not have it bookmarked.

An open-toed foot would be good if you have one. You need good visability. When I had a Viking sewing machine I used a foot that was for sewing on buttons.

I use my darning foot - and remember to put the feed dogs down so it's easier to change directions.

What little bit of this I've done, I have used the "quilting foot". I think that is what everyone else here is calling the "darning foot". ??? It is listed as a "quilting foot" in my manual.
I have used the walking foot for following lines on fabric.

I believe they are one in the same. I have a 1/4" and a 1/5" quilting foot that basically looks like a circle.

You'd use your darning foot.
