FMQ is one the most enjoyable things you can do on the new machine. Here's the accessory to make it easy.

If you're quilting through fluffy layers, like high loft batting, you want to use the Free Motion Quilting Closed Toe Foot QC.
How To Use The Free Motion Quilting Closed-Toe Foot QC
- On the touchscreen of your Horizon Memory Craft 12000 choose "Sewing Applications."
- Page Forward to "Free Motion Quilting".
- Choose Straight Stitch 2.
- Choose the QC foot.
- If you have the blue Free Motion Quilting Bobbin Case, insert this optional accessory.
- Attach the Free Motion Quilting Foot QC to the machine. Be sure you install it onto the machine with the back bar behind the ankle and the front bar as usual. This provides extra stability for the foot, and will keep the foot flat so that it doesn’t add any downward pressure.
- No need to lower your feed dogs. The machine will do it automatically when you select this sewing application.
- Your machine has an automatic foot pressure sensor. When you start stitching, the sensor will detect the loft of your project and adjust the presser foot pressure accordingly. The default setting is 1mm. But you can also adjust the setting in the Set Program.
- Begin free motion quilting.
- When you're finished stitching, press the thread snips button to cut your thread. Or, if desired, you can leave thread tails to bury into the back of your quilt.
And now you've done beautiful free motion quilting through all the layers of your quilt.
