Description

My piecing set up on my new PQ1500s. I didn't like the 1/4" foot it came with and remembered that I had an old magnetic seam guide kicking around in my sewing box, so I decided to give it a go. After playing with the guide and several of the feet the PQ1500s came with, I decided on the larger of the "standard" feet. It is small enough that I can see my fabric along the edge of the seam guide all the way up to make sure it stays in place, but large enough to hold the fabric in place.

Please ignore the ill-fitting recessed sewing cabinet it is sitting in right now. It's a little too long for it and will be getting inset into an old dinning table as soon as my hubby borrows the necessary tools. Tutorial here if anyone would like to do the same for their machine. I highly recommend doing this for your machine if you can as having a big flush surface for your fabric to lay on makes such a difference!

Menolly13

True Yeah! Once you get it figured out, I think you are going to love piecing on it. I just whip right through chain piecing now.

Menolly13 got it! And had to adjust tension a bit from where had it for quilting but not much. But I always obsess do I have it right! And sewed a couple of the drunkard's path blocks I am working on. Too tired after work to do more but got it set so thank you so much!
