The Perfect 1/4 inch Foot is designed to help you achieve a 1/4" (6mm) or a scant 1/4" (<6mm) seam when piecing. The needle hole in the foot is oval shaped allowing you to adjust the needle position.
The distance between the centre needle position and the guide is less than 1/4" (6mm).
Note: Depending on the weight of your fabric and thread it may be necessary to adjust the needle position to achieve your desires seam allowance. Move the needle to the right to decrease the seam allowance and to the left to increase it. You can safely move the needle three steps in either direction but not more.
* Do not use the straight stitch plate when using the Perfect 1/4" Foot.
The Perfect 1/4 inch Foot is also wonderful for topstitching. Adjust the needle position and use the guide to place your stitching exactly where you want it on your blocks, garments and home decor projects.
Note: Red markings on the Perfect 1/4" Foot help you align the fabric when you start sewing, at corners at the end of your fabric.
For all machines with the manual presser foot lifters: When you are using any of the optional quilt feet with guides and sewing with the needle set to stop in the down position, it is recommended that the presser foot be lifted only as high as necessary for pivoting. Lifting the foot to the extra high position can cause the needle holder to touch the guide on the presser foot. The foot may become dislodged, causing damage to the needle and or the foot.
