Quilt Piecing

Useful quilt piecing stitches are now included in MC8900 QCP and MC8200 QC. These stitches are used with the quilt piecing foot and automatically change the needle position to set and keep a perfect piecing seam allowance.

  • Note: the 7 mm seam allowance (instead of 1/4”) is commonly used in Asian markets.


Size has been adjusted for a more realistic appearance and better balance.
Letter Size

Characters are now positioned within a 9 mm space, so that they look more natural, especially when combining capital letters, small letters and even European alphabets with accents.

9 mm Block alphabet is included in the built-in stitches.
Letter Size
Programming a word is easier than with MC7700 QCP.

It is no longer necessary to press a confirm button or Memory key after each letter. Simply select the first letter and press the Memory key to enter programming mode, then just keep selecting letters to form your words and/or sentences.

Free motion quilting in left needle position

The left needle position has been used in JANOME embroidery machines for years.

Embroidery and FMQ are similar in that the fabric moves freely without foot pressure in both situations. Although FMQ using the center needle position is possible and can create beautiful results, a left needle position allows more trouble-free FMQ and produces similar lovely stitching.

Stitch D4S/4S has been updated and enhanced in the MC8900 QCP and MC8200 QC.

This is a simple straight stitch, but with a left needle position. When the D4/D4S stitch is selected and the needle plate is changed from zigzag to straight stitch, the needle position automatically changes to match the left hole of the straight stitch needle plate. This makes it possible to FMQ in the left needle position with the straight stitch needle plate (as described above).

The “Start-up speed setting” and “Needle stop position setting” have been added to the Set menu in MC8900 QCP and MC8200 QC.
