We all know a patchwork or quarter inch foot is used for piecing patchwork patterns. Using a consistent quarter inch seam allowance throughout the process means that your patches fit together perfectly to form a specific quilt pattern.

But, there are more uses for these feet than piecing. One of my favorite techniques using a quarter inch foot is making tucks. Tucks are way to add texture to a garment, pillow front, purse, and other types of projects. Cross tucks are even more interesting.

Click here for a quick Foot Note Video that shows how to make cross tucks (with no marking) using a patchwork foot.

Try this easy method of making tucks, letting the foot help you sew straight, keeping the width of each tuck a consistent quarter inch. Look for more sewfeet Foot Notes coming soon!
