Which foot do you prefer? Walking foot or accu feed system. What does the best job?
Quilting My Rainbow
Sorry, I don't know what the accu feed system is.
On the banks of the Mississippi River in north central Minnesota (Brainerd lakes area)
It depends for me on what type of quilting I am doing... if I am doing a straight stitch then I use my walking foot - for stabilizing and securing the quilt - for free motion I just put my tongue a certain way and my darning foot and go for it. I do not use a accu feed system - nor do I use a system that makes my stitches perfect sized... I believe that quilting needs to be a little bit by my hands and not anywhere perfect... I do the best I can.
I have used a walking foot, it did a good job. I've never used the accu feed system, I don't own a Janome machine.
My Pfaff has built in dual feed so I don't need to use a walking foot. My Babylock QCP came with a walking foot but I only do free motion quilting on that machine.
I'm OK with either one.
I will forever miss my pfaffwith the adt which was like an automatic walking foot. I hate to use the walking foot that you have to attach to the machine. Is it the bernina that hs the accufeed system? I would love to have had that but i couldn't afford it.
Is ,I don't know what a accu feed systems is either. My Janome has a built in walking food I just have to had the second foot to it and I bought an actual quilting foot for my machine and I love it. I don't use a stitch regulator as I think quilts should not be perfect . And that s my story and I'm sticking to it ..LOL
EAT!! SLEEP !! QUILT!!
My quilts are never perfect, but I did have to add a stitch regulator to my machine that is on the frame. I just couldn't get my stitches anywhere near even. When I FMQ on my domestic, I don't use a stitch regulator.
accu feed I beleive is on janome 6600 same concept as idt that is on pfaff just wondered what was better. Thanks for replying. Always trying to make a better quilt.
Is2116, I have only had experience with the pfaff. It was absolutely tops. never had aproblem with it matching plaids and such and absolutely no creeping of one layer and not the other. Haven't had any experience with the Janome that has one. The Janome that I have is an inexpensive one and has only the foot that you can apply. It in no way matches the work of the pfaff. Of course my pfaff is an older one. Ginny
