just back from the Frankfurt Bookfair i don´t have anything sewn to show you so i thought i´ll start a little series of great devices which help me with my patching and quilting.
today part one: the quarter inch foot with a guiding wing.
what a great thing that it, it almost feels like cheating!
i guess there are different models all around, mine - for my Pfaff machine - has a little metal wing as a guidance on the right hand side which "gets" the line of the fabric exactly and makes it so much easier to sew an 1/4 inch seam.
i have a "normal" 1/4" foot as well, where you line up your fabric with the side of the foot but this flap/wing-thing on this pictured one really makes all the difference!
maybe you can see it a bit better here:
so if you like your seams to be exact: get one. for me this was money very well spent.
have a great weekend!!
