My machine's new bestie!

I started to title this "my new best friend" but then I realized that Padsworth and DragonDrop would probably both get a little huffy about that . . . (wink)

So, this is my sewing machine's new bestie --- I love, love it, and I am wondering why it took me so long to get one of these!!


Yep, you guessed it; it is a quarter inch foot!!

This has taken all of the fussing, er, stomping, er, guesswork, uh, trial and error out of my piecing! Yay! Perfect quarter inch seams and perfect matches in my blocks!

I will stand up and be a witness --- you can quote me on it --- if you've had trouble keeping that quarter inch seam stitched correctly, you should get one of these!

Love,

  2. I felt the same when I got mine, why did I not get one sooner! They certainly make life easier. Hugs x

  3. Awe, does your make the perfect 1/4", that's awesome. I know they all can vary a little....I actually need to measure mine.

    I do like it though. Hope you had a beautiful Thanksgiving. God bless!

  4. I have one, and I have another that doesn't have the guide. Since I am lazy about changing feet, I usually use the one without the guide. LOL.

  12. A quilter without a 1/4 inch foot is like a bird without wings!

  14. I have one, but yours is more complicated and fancy than mine. I'm jealous.

  16. I love mine, too. I have two different ones, one has a guide and the other does not! It makes a big difference!

  19. I honestly would not use my new sewing machine until my 1/4" foot arrived- it's absolutely essential!

  20. I've never even heard of this! I hate when my quarter inch allowances are that *smidgen* off. Doesn't seem like a big deal but when it happens a couple times, your whole block/quilt can be off. Is it pretty universal (like the invisible zipper feet you can get in the store) or do brands each have their own?
