Janet Gronski, The built in French Knot stitch is #6 in Decorative Stitches category on the 15k machine. That is the stitch that Diane's instructions use to modify the stitch length on.
Basically what she does is try to eliminate the long stitches that connects successive French Knots together so that it stitches just as a nice single French Knot, and she adjusts the tension so that it looks lumpy.
Adjust the length to 0.0 and the tension to 8.2 and save it in a folder you create in the machine. 
The stx file that I created in Stitch Composer does much the same thing, but I feel that it stitches more successfully than the modified built-in stitch.
I'm attaching both the .stx file and Diane's instructions, I hope that's okay.
Try them both and see what you like!

What type of fabric?
For quilting fabric, try:
equilter.com
Hancocks of Paducah
and numerous small shops on etsy.com.  I've purchased from several etsy shops.

Fabric.com (owned by Amazon) has a more varied selection

Vogue Fabrics, in Houston, has silks and other fabrics.

Had to look that one (Mood) up, Kathy.  Some interesting fabrics.  Put it on my own list and will look again later.

You’re welcome. I resisted buying fabric online at first. I like to see and touch it. The first fabric I bought online was French Tricot from Farmhouse Fabrics.  Beautiful fabric!!!  Then I needed to make a baseball themed baby quilt but I live in a small area and very little to choose from, so bought from Missouri Star. Then I ‘got naughtier’ and now there’s lots of fabrics from everywhere. I like Matt Jordan’s hand cut precuts, too. 

I hope you can recompile your list.

Thanks Jim for reminding the members about the stitch!

The garment rack with the bungee cords is my version of the weightless frames. It keeps the quilt off the floor and easily moves as I work.

Jim, I was wondering,  if the hook race is damaged while embroidering,  wouldn't it also effect the red bobbin case while just sewing? I have no trouble when I'm in the sewing mode. Just curious. Janet

I am using the yellow dot bobbin case. I buy all my thread from the dealer. I wind my own bobbins with the thread he sells me. He is the only dealer anywhere close. He's been in business over 30 years selling Janomes, but he fixes all brands. I'll try buying some Janome prewound bobbins to see if that works. Thank you.

Subject: [onlinesewing-janome] Ready to Exchange

I am SO frustrated! I bought a brand new Janome 15000 three years ago. I loved it the first 13 months. Since then, I've had continuous problems. It has had to be shipped to New Jersey factory twice, because the local dealer can't fix the problem.  I would be in the middle of an embroidery project when the bobbin case jumped out of it's spot. I filed down where the needle struck the case to get the nick out and changed needles. The machine would sew a short time,  and then do it again. When I finally got my machine back, it worked a short time, then the same problem started again. This last time, a bird's nest gathered underneath my project-- 3 minutes left to sew on a 2 hour project. The machine froze. Once again, our local dealer cannot fix whatever the problem is this time.  It takes at least 2-3 months to get my machine back. My dealer has been very kind and understanding.  He let me borrow one from his store so at least I have something to sew with. Guess what! It did the same darn thing! My dealer ensures me that it isn't anthing I am doing wrong. Does anyone else have this problem? I want to  exchange my Janome for another brand. However, I have a lot of money tied into this machine - the initial cost, and shipping it to the factory, not to mention all the money I've spent on patterns. Help!! 
I feel like Janome should give me a new machine. Am I wrong? Janet

Jim,

Thank you so much for this information and for everything you do. This is extremely helpful. I have printed your postings, brought them to my dealer with no success. I will definitely bring brownies next time.

The size 14 needle instructions are very helpful. 

My son in law attached the magnets to wood per Diane’s picture and it takes half the time to do quilts.  I made a frame with a garment rack on wheels, bungee cords and clamps. No more popped magnets or dragged quilts. Thank you, Diane.
