[QUOTE=Jupiter;6219322]You might want to check around, maybe on the internet. Most sewing machines have a "quarter inch" presser foot available. It has a hanging down blade that you line your fabric up to, so it aligns your needle for a perfect 1/4". I have bought them for both of my sewing machines. Another foot that is very helpful to me is the "stitch in the ditch" foot, which really works nice to keep you stitches in the ditch, not allowing them to jump up to the other side of the seam. I may not have explained that very well.... so go look up 'Stitch in the Ditch" foot, and "Quarter Inch" foot. those will make your quilt making a lot more fun and easy.
I hope that helps some.
Jupiter[/QUOTE I bought a stitch in the ditch foot but it didn't seem to work very well and my machine made a weird noise i ended up buying it on amazon, so this could be the problem. I am hoping the DH gets me a new sewing machine for my bday in a couple of weeks so ill have to check to see if the 1/4 in foot is included. If not I will def. be asking for this too Thank you so much! I seriously learn so much on this forum. More than I've ever learned at any LQS class or ever really.. Usually when I walk into a LQS they see that I am younger than the average quilter and think I am completely stupid. I once had a question about appliqué on my machine so I asked about a class. The lady told me that I needed to take the beginning sewing class first and that class was full. I saw the list. It wasn't full. And I didn't want to pay for two classes! I've actually been quilting on and off for over ten years now, but still feel like a beginner because no one has been able to teach me beyond the basics. But then six months ago I found you guys! And my skills have improved more in six months than the last ten years on and off. So thank you all!! I appreciate you
