SOURCE: Free motion quilting
Refer to the accessories and you will find one is a darning plate. If you check the section for darning, there will be more information.
Look on the throat plate and there should be a tiny hole on each side of the feed dogs, this is where the plate snaps into place.
If you do not have the plate, set the stitch length to zero, and then tape an index card over the feed dogs with a hole punched out for the needle.
You may use this method forever, or check with your local Brother dealer for the accessory.

I assume you are doing free motion quilting? Use the V Menu, choose the first stitch. If you are using the Q Sensor foot or the spring free motion foot, go into the Set menu, hit "More" twice then turn On for either the Q Foot or Free motion. Make sure you have Needle Down turned on (top right-hand button on the left side above the needle). You might need to loosen the top tension by one or two clicks - first screen of the Set menu, under the picture that looks like DNA. A Size 90 needle is probably best and if the quilt is difficult to move about you might like to either use the Sewing Advisor to set for Heavy fabric or lessen the upper presser foot pressure - Set menu once again, next picture after the DNA. I have never had to do this with my D1 but I know some other people have. Get back if things are not working well for you.
