When you are piecing a quilt it is very important that you have an exact 1/4″ seam allowance. Without an exact 1/4″ seam all your quilt pieces won’t line up how you wanted them too.
Janome have a number of 1/4″ feet to assist you in your quilting endeavours, depending on which Janome sewing machine you have at home. The one that we are mainly interested in today is the:
was designed to help you sew extremely accurate 1/4 inch seams with ease. The set includes a see-through presser foot with two attachment guides.
Its special design allows you to do a number of repetitive quilting tasks quickly and with extra accuracy. For instance, ditch quilting, miniature piecing, triangle piecing, and those all-important quarter inch seams. The foot is made from special clear plastic, which allows you to see through to your fabric and take advantage of the guideline markings at 1/8 inch and 1/4 inch from the center needle drop position.
It also has handy cornering markings for both 1/8 and 1/4 inch seams. Additionally, an oval-shaped needle hole allows you to make needle adjustment for scant 1/4 inch piecing (this feature is available on computer models only). The attachments are easy to take on and off and the foot is very easy to use.
