    I had never heard of it until I looked it up. Warning: don't google "binding foot", you'll get gross images of human feet being bound.

    Something like this, right?

    Can't imagine that I would have enough control with a foot that is supposed to handle all those layers. Nope, I'm footlose and fancy free.

    I have used my regular stitch in the ditch foot for this.

    I have started machine stitching the binding on charity quilts; I think I could use something like this. I will have do some checking, thank you for the info.
    I love to hand stitch the binding to the back, but for charity baby quilts I will go with the machine.

    Anyone use one of these?

    I just sew the binding onto the back of the quilt and then machine stitch it on the front with a decorative or blanket stitch.
    I have one of these feet, but the binding is very narrow, more for potholders and coasters IMHO.

    When I went to the big quilt show I asked about the binding foot and the lady at the booth for my machine said it wasnt good and dont buy one. She works for the company and says it dosnt work well.
