Default Best foot for applique

What is the best pressure foot for doing machine appliques? Will my regular zigzag foot do it?

What machine do you have & what type of stitch are you going to use?

I have done machine appliqué on my old Singer 401G using the regular foot and a very narrow, very short zig-zag stitch.

I like my open toe foot and do a blanket stitch.

I usually use the open toe foot for applique, as it gives me a clear view of the applique edge and my needle.

I like to use my open toe foot or a clear foot. Being able to see clearly is the most important thing to me, but both of these feet have a groove underneath for the stitching to ride in.

I use my open toe foot. I normally do a blanket stitch but I'm sure it would work for other stitches too.
