Subject: Juki TL2010Q Date: 4/14/13 12:37 PM

I am just learning on my new Juki, in particular FMQ. I have been using the quilting feet that came with the machine 1/4 and 1/5 quilting foot. I notice there is not a lot of play in the feet and have some issues with the movement of the fabric being hindered by the foot. The pressure on the feet is to the lowest and feed doggies are down.

Any suggestions? I found a fix of stacking cardboard pieces in the foot to give some play to the foot, but I don't see this as a long term solution. I have also cleaned the feet with mineral oil to remove the gunk from shipping. Should I order the darning foot from my Juki dealer similar to the one on Sharon Schaumber's website - stippling foot? I am afraid to try the Leah Day quilting foot fix, as the machine goes so fast that I am not sure the foot would be able to handle the stress. I found these ideas on Yahoo Groups - wonderful.

All said, I love my Juki, what beautiful stitches. I LOVE the thread cutter!

Any ideas? BTW - I am not using a quilting frame.

I've been practicing FMQing on mine too and have been using the foot that came with the machine. I'm also interested in hearing about what other Juki TL2010Q owners are using. My only other FMQing experience has been on my Bernina using a BSR, so it's quite a change for me. I love the smoooooth sound of the Juki. My husband even comments on how he likes the way it sounds. It is my go-to machine for piecing and I also love the thread cutter. Love hearing that "thunk."

Hi SewNanny, I am using the walking foot today for SITD on a quilt. I love the "thunk" of the cutter and my husband is impressed with the Juki - he had to remove the throat plate for me (too tight screws) and inspected it.

Do you feel that the foot your using for fmq is too tight to move the fabric?

I am loving this machine so happy I bought it, thanks for the enabling!

You're welcome! I haven't used it enough to notice whether the foot seems too close to the fabric or not. I'll try to play with it again in the next couple of days and see. But, I don't remember it jumping out at me that it was too tight the few times I've used it. Are you using a thick batting?

Here is a picture of a practice feather using a halo and cardboard in the foot. Leah Day and Sharon Schamber where are you?Juki FMQ 008

eta: There was so much drag on my fabric from the quilt foot without cardboard it caused small stitches, and was not smooth feeling and it feels like I could break the needle.

I found with the Halo and cardboard in the foot easier to control the movements. If I didn't have the cardboard in the 1/5 foot or 1/4 foot, I experience a lot of hand and arm tension/fatigue and soreness from the fabric drag. This was my first time using the Halo.

After some investigating, Sharon Schamber has 3 episodes on "The Quilt Show" using the Juki TL-2010Q. It is available for TQS members to view until end of May or June. On SS Network you can buy the DVD of these episodes. It is really interesting all the information she is giving regarding the 2010.

Patty,

Did you put the cardboard in so the foot won't hop? I don't have a Juki (yet) and I'm curious. I have a Gammill and it has a hopping foot, you can actually adjust the stroke of the hop. For a quilt with thick seam intersections I would normally increase the stroke. That makes it easier to get over the thick seams.

Visit a Janome dealer and purchase a darning/ free motion foot for the 1600P. They have 1 where you can adjust how close the foot sits to the fabric. This foot stays level without the up/down bounce. Much much easier to quilt with. I have the Brother PQ1500, it's also a high speed straight stitch machine. I have 1 of the Juky feet and found it had a lot of drag when free motion quilting off a frame.

You are doing feathers with the piecing feet?? Try the free motion foot. (I think they call it a compensating foot.)
