    This is the foot you use when piecing a quilt block and putting a quilt top together. The ideal is to have a 1/4 inch seam.

    My 1/4" foot is the only one I use unless I want to do a fancy stitch.

    When you want a 1/4" seam ... much easier to make it happen when you have this foot.

    I have a Kenmore and a Bernina, and never had a 1/4 inch foot until I got the Bernina, and within a month of using it, went online and found one for my Kenmore. I would not be without them. They are so valuable. The accuracy of the 1/4 inch seam is so much better. You will love it.

    Love the 1/4 inch foot and have one for my Bernina and Brother. My seams are so much more accurate using it.

    Thank you all so very much I appreciate your help. I must try this foot I'm pretty sure I have one for the White machine and if not I know I have one for the Brother. I am so glad I found this board so much useful info but I need to spend more time sewing than reading. Thanks again. Sue

    The one I have for my White machine is not very big but the lines seem to go across rather than down. I'm guessing that I must be missing something here. I know it sounds dopey but I would thing the lines would have to be going down the foot instead of across. Please help me. Thanks so much in advance sometimes something just doesn't click and this is it. Sue

    It took me a while to get the hang of my 1/4" foot. It has a guide, so I can only use it for edge piecing.

    Thanks, I guess that's what I'll have to do. I think I'm thinking it does something different than what I'm thinking. I'll let you know if I ever figure it out sounds different. I hate having to mess around with stuff such a waste of time it seems but I guess the only way to use it. Sue
