Default which bernina feet do you use the most?

I recently purchased a Bernina 350....I use my machine mostly to quilt, home dec and "garments" for the grandbabies. The local dealer is having a sale on Bernina accessories.....which feet do you use the most? I have the quilter's 1/4" foot (may upgrade to the foot with the guide), and I need to purchase the FMQ and walking feet. Any others that I "need" to look at? Thanks so much. Everyone here is so helpful and fun! :-)

I mostly use the walking foot. I also like to have a 'clear' foot so I can see what I am stitching.

I probably use the open toe foot the most.

Don't do what I did and not take inventory of the feet before buying more. I bought a 37 for the quarter inch and then went home and discovered I had one. I had completed a few blanket stich appliques before I discovered I had an applique stich foot. Make sure you know what you already have before purchasing. I use my 1/4 inch foot the most, but I am interested in one with a guide, now that you have mentioned it.

I use my #1 all purpose foot for general sewing, my#37 for patchwork, my#20 for appliqué, my walking foot, my darning/spring foot (before I got the BSR) and occasionally my buttonhole foot for buttonholes.

Always happy to do a bit of enabling, Suzie! I believe the foot with the guide is 37/57........... :-)

I like the #10 edge stitch foot for a perfect top stitch.

I use the 1/4" foot, the #1 foot, the walking foot and I prefer the #24 freehand open toe embroidery foot over the FMQ foot for FMQ. You have much better visibility with the open toe embroidery foot.

This foot also works well for SID quilting!

I use the 1/4" foot most of the time. The walking foot is a close second.
