...or maybe I should say, my "duh" moment!
I bought my sewing machine before I ever started quilting. Have been quilting now for about 9 years, I guess, and I just discovered I have a 1/4" foot in my tool kit! Argghh!!!!

Oh, my! When I read this post I thought, "I wonder what a 1/4" foot looks like". Just looked up a pic on the internet. Guess what? I have one of those, and I'VE NEVER USED IT EITHER.

A huge aha for me, too!Thanks for posting!

Just so you know, 1/4" foot does not guarantee 1/4" seams. I hope yours is, but just to make sure: MEASURE your seams/pieces before you sew a whole bunch of stuff assuming that it is perfect. (Ask me why I'm telling you this, lol)

Thanks for the tip. I'll double check mine.
