What foot do you use for a zig zag stitch?
Use an Open Toe Foot (additional accessory for some machine models) so that the area in front of the needle is unobstructed. Position the fabric so the right movement of the zigzag goes off the edge of the fabric. As the stitch then moves to the left, it “rolls” the fabric over, stitching it in place.
What stitches can you do with a walking foot?
The walking foot is engineered for FORWARD MOTION stitches such as straight and zig zag. If the feed dogs move backwards they may cause the fabric to shift, as feed dogs do not move backward as efficiently as they do forward. Think of it this way, your car will drive in reverse, but it is designed to move forward.
Why is my zigzag stitch sewing straight?
If the upper thread appears as a single line, the lower thread is incorrectly threaded. Instead of the appropriate tension being applied to the lower thread, it is pulled through the fabric when the upper thread is pulled up.
Can you do a wavy stitch with a walking foot?
Organic Wavy Line Quilting: Organic Wavy Line Quilting can be performed from edge to edge using your walking foot.

The looser the quilting, the less stiff the quilt, the more drape.
Can you reverse stitch with a walking foot?
When not to use a walking foot.
REVERSE SEWING: The foot isn’t designed for use in reverse. foot assists in forward movement and won’t allow the fabric to move side to side. SOME DECORATIVE STITCHES: Wide decorative stitches require side to side fabric motion, which is inhibited by the walking foot.
