Here is the foot that came with the machine. It's very difficult to see what you are doing throught that plastic. Also, occasionally it seems to twist a bit and then I break a needle on the plastic. Not good at all for the machine or my quilting project.
Here is the new foot installed. I tried it out and it works great. I can see where I am going and it seems to run smoother because there is less area touching the quilt. In front I am holding the quarter inch foot. It slides along the edge of a ruler or template. I haven't tried it yet since I don't have any thick templates. I don't want to use a regular ruler (which is made of thinner plexiglass than templates) in case it jumps off the edge and sews my fingers. This machine is very strong and fast. It could easily put a needle through fingernail and bone so I'm taking no chances.
