    Why the walking foot?

    Loved this idea and used it on a baby quilt - the only thing I did differently was to hand finish the binding which is my personal preference.

    Sorry but the stitch she is using is the knit seam stitch. The blind hem stitch goes "straight-straight-straight-zigzag to the LEFT-straight-straight, etc". The BHS is set so that the fold of the garment is to the left of the needle and the single bite stitch is into a few threads of the garment. The stitch that goes to the right is to sew a stretch fabric and provide a non-continuous straight stitch that would break if the fabric is pulled as a stretch knit should.

    This video is effective but dangerous! The artist repeatedly leaves her rotary cutter laying on the workspace and even keeps it in her hand and waving it around with the blade exposed. Bad habit to teach!!
