■ Quilting

Sewing the quilt top, batting, and backing together is
called quilting. You can sew the quilt with the
walking foot to keep the quilt top, batting, and
backing from sliding. The walking foot has a set of
feed dogs that move together with the feed dogs in
the needle plate during sewing.
For straight line quilting, use the walking foot and
the straight stitch needle plate. Always select a
straight stitch (middle needle position) when using
the straight stitch needle plate.

Attach the walking foot (see page 66).
Note
• Thread the needle manually when using the
walking foot, or only attach the walking foot
after threading the needle using the
"Automatic Threading" button.
c
Place one hand on each side of the presser
foot to hold the fabric secure while sewing.
Memo
• Sew at slow to medium speed.
• Do not sew in reverse or use stitches that
require side ways or reverse feeding.
Always check to be sure that your quilting
surface is securely basted before beginning
to sew. Specialized machine quilt needles
and threads are also available for machine
quilting.

    please provide a part number for the zigzag embroidery plate,it's included with the 6700 D, however no part number is referenced anywhere in the stupid manual, and there is no item anywhere to replace it? After spending 10 K you think you could put a part number in a book so I can reorder one? my machine jammed and this one has a huge bur on it that cannot be worked out :-(
