    I would definitely get the one with the guide. I couldn't piece without mine!

    The 1/4" foot really improved my seams, but I'm thinking I'm going to add Jan's method in addition to it, in order to have the guide start farther to the front than the foot does alone. I love that it's stuff I have around the house and that will not mar the machine bed or create a sticky mess to get off later. Just coincidentally you could use it to jot down handy reminders about the order to sew some blocks or just a tally of your progress. Thanks, Jan!!!

    This is the machine and set-up that I have too! But, I use my extension table and it also has the markings. I use the foot with the guide and then "bump" my needle over six "clicks" to the right for a scant 1/4" seam. The needle will still go through the single-hole foot with not problem.

    You can see the markings on my machine from this picture. I don't think any other machines have this ... but I could be wrong too.

    Your walking foot should be a quarter inch foot. Put it on your machine and lower the foot to the bed. It should be one quarter inches. If it is not, go the the manual that came with your machine. It should list all the additional feet you can get.
