    I see your point, but I don't think it'll be any worse than eyeballing it like I have been for years. If I decide to do a quilt that has to be 300% accurate, I'll measure things. then!

    Mine has a piece of black metal attached to the right side of the foot, in a vertical orientation. This allows you to butt the fabric against the black piece. I would be able to see it better if it was red, because the black doesn't stand out very much from the feed dog openings. Of course, once I get the fabric going, it's easier to see.

    Thanks, jdavis, for answering my question. I was just about ready to post a that very question. Too bad, I don't think I have a "1/4 " foot. Wish I did.

    Nope! Never used marking tape. I really did just eyeball it. My machine has lines for 3/8 & 5/8....I just had to guess where 1/4 was.
