    I am in good company ! Sewing with nancy was a wonderful show hilighing landscape quilting. the guest was using a darning foot and nancy was using the chunky plastic Big Foot !

    Woo Hoo ! I felt good !
    I used color fabric so better photo, no flash back from camera.
    Pressure foot for free motion quilting on a regular sewing machine.

    first practice in background, experimenting with tensions, settings ect.. The birds is an example of using my big foot .

    has been working very nicely ! I chose over my darning pressure foot !

    I have a couple of these and need to try using them on my Juki TL98QE machine, although I do like the heavy FMQ foot that came with it.

    I have a big foot and a little foot for one of my machines and for my other machine, I bought the expensive feet. I get the the same results with either so going inexpensive has not mattered in this case.

    I was told by a master Free Motion Quilter.. Practice practice practice.. I have been doing that .. a lot ! and only in 4 inch square areas at a time or I get confused the direction of each twirl. Really helps to work in small areas at a time.

    lots of rip and tear out stitches to get this way ! hah!
