A walking foot has feed dogs on the top that work with the existing feed dogs on your machine to feed the layers through the machine at the same rate.  It definitely helps. Here is a picture http://www.overstock.com/Home-Garden/Walking-Foot-for-Sewing-Machines/2022843/product.html

I don't have the power, but would someone with it please sticky an FAQ about machine quilting? I'd be happy to write it.
