In addition, Patchwork foot # 37D features three evenly spaced markings (1/4” apart) on its side that make the square insertion of pieces in patchworking easier. A narrow groove under the flat sole serves as a thread channel for smoother piecing. TIP: a large sewing table or cabinet makes quilt piecing easier and promotes greater precision as it supports your patchwork better.
