Default Open-toe pressure foot

I am wanting an open-toe pressure foot for free motion quilting...I have a Juki 98Q which is a high shank machine. I like the little hopping foot that came with it but wish it were open-toed. Just wondered if anyone could tell me what kind they have and where they got it if it is high shank. I looked at the ones for Janome and will consider them, but they are not exactly what I want.

I will appreciate any input...

Check out Leah Day's site. She modified her's so she could see better.

Bernie, thinks for reminding me of her...not what I was looking for but may try that as a last resort. It seems to work for her just fine.

I used the closed toe walking foot for my Janome for a long time before I realized the open toe walking foot was around. I really noticed the open toe is the way to go.My walking feet are my favorite.

I have a Janome and I had purchased the closed circle foot. When I took my FMQ class, the instructor brought his Dremel and just cut a piece out of the front. Mine is clear plastic, not sure what yours is made of. Doesn't affect the use of it at all and I can see perfectly!
