Quarter Inch Foot (Suits Low Shank 7mm and 5mm machines)
How to Master The Intricate Art of Machine Piecing....
Easily, Quickly And ALWAYS Accurate!
Imagine if you could machine-piece all the blocks you've been sewing by hand or normal presser foot, whiz them up, and end up with a professional finish EVERY time....
I have pieced using a standard presser foot for years, but I like this much better...."
- Stella, a Happy Customer
What would it be like to NEVER have to fix or "fudge" all the blocks that just didn't piece together quite right - because of uneven seam allowance - Ever Again?
What if Super Precise Machine Piecing was easier than you think?
Often the hard part is to come up with exactly the right tool, for the right job, at the right price.
Formally trained as a Fashion / Textile Designer - now a Quilter & Patchwork Teacher - I have spent the last 10 years teaching others and sharing the joy of Patchwork Quilt making.
The Amazing Transformation that I have witnessed my students achieve - time and time again - simply by using a 1/4 inch foot just blows my mind...!
There is no doubt that in order to create beautiful machine pieced blocks, you need to practice.....
But the first step in becoming an accomplished patchwork artisan is having the right tools.
The Secrect Weapon Of Successful Machine Piecing Is A Quarter Inch (1/4") Foot.
Most beginners (as well as some seasoned quilters) have found it difficult to keep an exact Quarter (1/4) Inch Seam Allowance.
This Generic Quarter Inch Foot is the perfect partner for your Basic Front Loading Low Shank Janome Sewing Machine, such as a Janome RE1306 (which is available from K-Mart).
Designed to fit all Front Loading Bobbin Janome Models with Low Shank, it has been made to equivalent specification by a reputable manufacturer and it has the same quality workmanship.
Also known as a "Patchwork Foot", this quarter inch foot has ALL metal construction for durability, and smooth edges that does not snag your fabric... sewing with an accurate seam has NEVER been so easy!
What's the difference between FRONT Loading and TOP Loading machines, anyway?
The main difference between "Front Loading" and "Top Loading" machines is the maximum stitch width.
That means if you have a FRONT loader that does NOT let you alter needle position, your default needle position is NOT going to be the same as other top loading models.
What does this mean to YOU?
That means you NEED to find the right foot to fit your model correctly.
If you use the wrong Quarter or 1/4" foot, your needle will NOT align correctly, and you risk breaking the needle when it hits the metal part of the foot (and the sharp, broken needle tip can potentially fly into your eye, causing injuries)!!
Please check with me if you're unsure.
This is the foot you wanna get RIGHT!
How Does This Foot Help?
A quarter inch foot is design specifically for machine piecing your quilt block together... what you want is a consistent, accurate seam allowance that is exactly 1/4 inch (or 6.3mm).
And sewing together fiddly little pieces AND keeping a precise seam allowance can be tricky......
How important is an accurate seam allowance?
Very important... a seam allowance that is not accurate or consistent will affect the overall construction of your quilt top.
First, your seams will not match when piecing together rows and columns. You may force your seams to match by stretching your fabric, which will cause it to be taut or distorted. You may also relax your fabric, which will cause it to pucker.
Second, your block will not be the correct size. When your pattern says what the finished block size will be, it assumes that you have used an accurate seam allowance. If your seam allowance is off, you may end up with a larger or smaller block. Depending on the block, you may be able to resize the blocks without any significant problems. But sometimes the block will not resize easily, and part of your block may be cut off, including a fabric seam allowance. When this happens, tips and points may be blunted and lines simply won't match up.
Third, your top will not be as strong. If your seam allowance is too narrow, your pieces may come apart at the seams - literally. Even if your pieces stay together, threads from the edges of the pieces may work their way through the top. Worst of all, your whole quilt may start to come apart in the first wash!
So, What's a Quilter to Do?
And Experience The Difference For Yourself...!
What this 1/4" foot does is provide your raw edges with a fixed width as you stitch. As long as you line up all layers of fabric (and your cutting is pretty accurate to begin with) against the front width on the right side of your foot , you can be absolutely certain that your seams will be a precise 1/4 inch - no more, no less.... NO matter how fast you sew!
I can't imagine machine piecing quilt blocks together without my new quarter inch foot! NO WAY!!! :-)
- Melissa, a Young Quilter
You will end up with even, neat, professional quality machine piecing.... Give them a press and you will see that your blocks are ALWAYS the size they should be!
Not a Quilter?
You will still find plenty of use for your 1/4 inch foot:
It's great any time you want a very tight, exact, tiny s/a (seam allowance).
Recently I used it to bind a corset - the instructions called for a quarter-inch seam allowance on the binding, and this foot made it really easy."
- Gemma, Costume Designer
- I often use mine in dressmaking. A 1/4" (or 6.3mm) seam allowance is perfect for curved edges like armholes and collars.
- Your quarter inch foot is also perfect for sewing silky or slippery fabrics... you gain precise control with NO stress!
- No overlocker and need French Seams instead? Easy. You 1/4" foot will take care of the accuracy.
- This foot is also great for making fabric bags and hats, where you would generally use an iron-on interfacing, and therefore need a smaller seam.
- They are also handy for cloth doll, "softies" or teddy bear making..... Try making a Sock Monster this weekend!
