Drop the feed dogs and install a darning or free motion presser foot. Be sure to use a brand new needle. The stitch width should be set on zero. The stitch length really doesn't matter since you will be manipulating the material manually.

Then you will need to test on a scrap sandwich block made up of your fabric and batting to adjust the tension. Tension is appropriate when the upper and bobbin threads meet in the middle of the sandwich without any thread looping or pulling.

You may be able to find a manual by asking your local Viking dealer or search the internet for:

Hi, Free motion quilting is done with your programmed quilting stitches, Lower the feed dogs using the small white dial on the front of the machine behind the accessory tray, pick from one of the quilting stitches. they do make a free motion quilting tool ( I think they call it a hoop), but it just sets on top the material and helps you guide your material thru the machine. Hope this helps

Help setting Viking Designer I machine for free motion quilting


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.

Free motion quilting Viking Designer 1


I had the same dissatisfaction when I switched from the 1+ to the Designer 1. After some trials I am now happy. You need the springy free motion foot. Part #413 03 76-45. You take off the white shank and screw it on with the metal bar over the needle hook. In the set menu turn the SensorQ on, the free motion on, select stitch 1 from menu V and drop the feed dogs. It also makes a big difference to use the straight stitch throat plate which just has a small hole for the needle to go through. One other hint is that I often have to reduce my needle tension 3 or 4 steps. Hope it works for you.

Free Motion Sewing - Jams


The Designer 1 usually has a very nice free motion stitch using the V1 stitch. It should pull only slightly to the rear so that no bobbin thread shows while doing free motion embroidery. Upper tension may be increased for balanced stitch when stippling.
If your machine doesn't sew with the regular stitches with the teeth up, and it's properly threaded, the thread must be dragging on the bobbin case somewhere. First get the machine sewing a straight line, then try V1 again.
