Even Feed Foot

The even feed foot is another name for the walking foot. This foot is great for machine quilting straight or gently curved lines. It helps to keep all the quilt layers from shifting as it “walks” the top fabric along while the feed dogs below tend to the bottom layer.

If you are interested in making small circles or “doodles” when quilting, you’ll want to use a darning foot.

You’ll find more information about the even feed foot, check out the walking foot entry.  You might also like our section Finishing the Quilt, under the Beginner Basics tab.
