What’s this bit of my walking foot for?

Question: I have an attchment for my janome machine which enables me to do measured straight lines.  I haven't used it for years, and so have forgotten how ! ! It consists of a metal bar about 3 inches long with a right angle prong at the end of it, and 12 years ago it was fantastic for quick quilting diamonds or squares.   Have you any ideas please of how I used it?

How to Use a walking foot

Val:  Wendy Gardiner, editor of Sewing World, talks us through how to fit and use this very usefull sewing foot.   In fact if she had to purchase just one additional foot for her machine this would be it - and I agree;  it makes a HUGE difference to the quality of work whenever you have wadding in and now with the opentoed versions available you can combine it with your decorative stitches and threads too.

I want to make a cot quilt – where do I start?

You need to start with the fabric: some for the top, wadding for the middle and backing fabric; The wadding and backing fabric should be the same size as each other AND they should be larger than the top fabric, by approx 4" all the way round. Layer together with pins or tacking ready for quilting. see layer quilt and bind Click here: You need to quilt the sandwich either by hand or machine: if you plan to work by machine you have two options: free motion:  Jennie has a couple of workshops on the website - the first is free motion embroidery - but don't be put off by the title - it will help

and then the second is about free motion quilting: or using the walking foot.:  this is really easy to use as it is just another foot and just sews, but fitting it can be a bit of a trick, so here is some help:click here and then you can sew in straight lines or use simple wavy stitching as suggested by Valerie.
