YouTube has some great videos on free motion quilting. Depending on which brand of machine you use, that machine's website should also have some videos on how to use particular accessories, or the dealer for that brand should be happy to show you.

I feel for you - the first time I attached my quilting foot and it started making a clunk-clunk-clunk every time it hopped up and down I thought I was doomed. You'll be just fine - do a couple of practice sandwiches and before you know it you'll have an entire quilt done.

Congrats on your new toy! Best thing you can do is make yourself a stack of quilt sandwiches and start practicing, before you know it you will have mastered you foot!

Always takes practice with new foot. Shows do make it look simple!

a free motion quilting foot (darning foot) will take some time to get used to using simply because it takes practice to do FMQing. the foot is only one part of it. good luck. keep on trying and trying.

They make it look so easy because they're not wrestling with a big quilt under the throat. LOL I've been quilting for a number of years, have practiced plenty and can barely do a decent meandering, but don't give up, I haven't.
