Singer 221 Featherweight Low Shank Open-Toe Quarter 1/4" Patchwork Attachment (Low Shank)

Open-Toe Quarter Inch 1/4" quilt piecing attachment - scant 1/4-inch seams with precision! Greater visibility for stitching half-square triangles (HST) and paper piecing. This foot works really well for paper piecing because you can see the stitching lines so clearly all along the stitch path. If you happen to have the Graduated Throat Plate, then the 1/4" line leads your eye right to the edge of the foot for a scant 1/4" seam allowance. Otherwise, using the right edge of the foot as you can see in the photos is what you will align your fabric seam allowance to when stitching. Because of the openness of the foot, you have to stitch a little bit slower as you come to the end of your stitching line and the edge of the fabric, so that the feed dogs will guide the fabric straight.
