After doing some research and some blog hopping from many well experimented Janome users - JANOME FREE MOTION FRAME QUILTING FEET SET a “ruler” foot – does exist The closed toe foot in this set has a thick “lip” which is very useful for doing free motion quilting when you wish to follow a line or curve using a ruler as your guide. Some folk like to mark their lines onto their quilt tops with chalk (or other means) and then free motion as close to their markings as possible others use rulers. Rulers are steady and accurate - but remember to allow 1/4 inch between the desired placing of the stitching & ruler edge as the distance between the edge of the foot which will ride along the ruler edge and the needle is 1/4 inch. These two feet will connect onto the convertible free motion foot set. - It is also important to use rulers for machine quilting - these are thicker and wont slip under the foot and damage your machine when the needle hits it... (and breaks your ruler!)
Please note that Janome is not recommending the use of this Convertible Free motion foot and “ruler foot” attachment for machine models which have automatic presser foot lift as there is a chance that the foot could go up too high in the auto presser foot lift function and cause damage. Warranty will not cover damage caused by using these feet on models with Auto presser foot lift: Janome Mc12000, Mc15000 and Skyline S7.
