This foot was made for walking...

and it just so happens that this modern attachment works just as well on my 1948 Singer 15-91, as it does on my 1991 Janome Memory Craft 7500.


For this project, I added the seam guide bar onto my walking foot because I was doing a lot of straight line quilting.  This guide makes sewing parallel lines easy.

For now, here's a little portion of my quilting and I'll show you the finish on this tomorrow.

Liked your title!

I'm going to have to check to see if my walking foot can handle a seam guide ... I don't remember there being an opening or slot on the side like I see on yours. They really knew how to make those machines back then - I wonder if they realized that 63 (for you) and 58 (for me) years later we'd still be happily and successfully stitching away?!

I'm so glad you posted about this. I had read a review that said the modern walking foots wouldn't work on the 15-91s and that they needed a special walking foot for straight stitch machines. So I was thinking I'd have to buy one of those before I could do any quilting with the 15-91 I just bought. Once I get the basting done on the quilts I'm working on... I'm going to give the one I have a try before I go ordering another. Thanks!
