Can someone please explain to me how you are to use the quilting guide with the walking foot? As you can see by the attached picture, the guide is located 1 1/4 inches behind the needle! Am I setting it up wrong or is this a major design flaw?

Editing to say that for some reason the picture is not showing up, but can be viewed at http://www.flickr.com/photos/91181860@N08/8724052743/in/photostream

Your guide should go in on the right side and the bend of the arm should be up. Stitch your first seam, then adjust the arm for the next seam and tighten to the width you need. Did you get another arm for the left side? The picture of the quilting guide is in the manual on page 60 online on Jukihome.com for HZL-F Series.

I only have 1 guide, which can go on either the right or left side of the foot. The picture that you are refering to is for the standard presser foot. The online manual shows the walking foot with the quilt guide on page 68, but it is a line drawing and does not depict how the guide and foot actually are.

I am trying to use this guide to stitch to the right of a previous line of stitching on a heavy quilt which requires the walking foot in order to keep the fabric/batting/fabric sandwich from shifting (which it does when I use the standard presser foot).

Perhaps the picture at http://www.flickr.com/photos/91181860@N08/8725451012/ gives you a better idea of what I am trying to use the seam guide for.

The Juki walking foot is deeper than others I own and the guide doesn't come forward far enough, IMO. The paper clip option here might work for you. I'm interested in that double arm guide. I don't use a quilting guide very often, but that could be handy.

Misschris, thanks for the link. I don't use a quilting guide often either, but they do come in handy now and then.

The hole in my walking foot is too big for a paperclip and I cannot find one right off, that is long enough to get ahead of the needle position. It's time for bed here (12:04 am) so I will see what I can jerry-rig tomorrow with some tape ... ah, necessity and the mother of invention ...
