    I have to move my needle over 2 spots to get a real scant 1/4". It used to bother me but now I'm so used to it that it's like second nature.

    :> Not so much the operator, but that every thread and fabric combo won't be exactly the same.

    I bought the Little Foot, and it is a perfect 1/4" for me, if I bump my needle once to the left, it is a perfect scant 1/4" :D:D:D
    The feet with the blade/guide on it doesn't work for me either, my fabric either goes under it or bunches up right next to it :(

    I use the regular foot and change the needle position. That way I have more control in the feed dogs.

    My SQ9000 has a 1/4 in. foot and it is perfect, I also had this same type of foot with my old Brother and have had no problem keeping a 1/4 in. seam at all. :D

    the little foot is clear with red measure lines on it..no guide bar.
    the lines on the end of the foot, help with stopping 1/4" from the end of the quilt binding corner..did that make sense? lol

    i use it alot..the bar on my regular foot got bent, and i ended up taking it off..

    Move the needle position! Never thought of it! Duh. Thank you for telling me this tip -- I have an expensive machine and a 1/4 inch foot, but still can't get good 1/4 inch seams. I have been "eye-balling it" even with my 1/4 inch seam foot and not getting good results. Off to put your advice into practice. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
