    I have an older version of the edge-stitching foot for my Viking D1. For that model, you must be able to adjust the needle position. Depending on the fabrics I'm quilting with, the needle position changes from time to time. (i.e. piecing with my hand dyed pima cottons vs. a quilting flannel).

    Love the foot, totally recommend it. Glad to know that there's a specific quarter inch model now!

    Thank you!

    I use my serger to sew pieces/strips together and get a perfect 1/4" seam every time. Does anyone else use their serger? It makes for more seam to hand stitch through but I love the durability of the seam.

    Another tip, thanks! I just bought a book about quilts that are done on a serger because they looked so neat, especially the one on the cover. It's called Serge and Merge Quilts.

    Something else added to my list!! :lol: :lol:

    I have the true quarter inch foot for my machines and they have a round hole so there is no room for adjusting the needle. The needle must be in the center position to use these feet or you will break the needle and or break the machine. On the other hand, the edge stitching foot does have an oval opening in the foot where you can adjust the needle.
    It can be a very expensive lesson for a new quilter to not pay attention to the hole in the foot. Thank You for all you do on this forum.

    I strip piece and tried to used the serger, cut them apart and where I cut the seams came apart. I had to go back and resew the seams. My pieces were 2.5" x 1.5". But I did have lots of luck when I serged around my quilt before putting on the binding. It made the binding go on beautiful.
