Question about Janome Sewing Machines
Your model doesn't have this feature Janome 7100QDC Computerized Sewing Machine , it it did, there would be a knob on the top left of the machine above the presser foot which you could screw up or down to increase or decrease the pressure. Its not a feature on many machines, the presser foot bar has a big spring internally which applies the pressure and this will just adjust to suit the fabric under the foot.

Testimonial: "The manual actually tells me to adjust the pressure on the presser foot to do appliqué. It does not tell me how to do this anywhere in the manual and I see absolutely no way of doing it :-("

SOURCE: How to adjust the tension
You are not actually able to adjust the presser foot. For quilting you should pick up a "free motion" foot pedal made specifically for that. They run on e-bay for roughly $10-$20. Make sure you get one that fits your type of machine.

I have seen these machines with broken presser bar clamps (something inside the head). If it is just a bind then some oil on the presser bar may work, if the clamp is broken then it is probably not worth fixing.

This is a relatively easy adjustment as I just did one last week but I'm not sure I can explain it. Anyway, open up the lamp cover and look at the top of the presser bar. There is a sensor that is easily adjusted. It has a small phillips screw that you need to loosen. Then move the black 'L' shaped piece either up or down a little (I can't remember which way) and re-tighten the screw, you may need to experiment. The 'L' shaped piece is a flag that goes between two sensors when the foot is raised and can be rotated left and right about 10 degrees. I hope that helps.
