It looks like a quilting foot, but I could be wrong. If the area on the right is 1/4 inch, then I would really think so Smiley

What I do with it is,line my fabric up with it's edge touching the black and set the needle to left position, then you have 1/4 inch seams.

Just clip on the bitch and go for a ride! See what she takes you for  Cheesy

The worst you can do is break a needle, or possibly set the machine out of time.
Both easy to fix.

Start slow with hand over the dial...no foot pedal. Then you can see what it is wanting from you.

I go for the "edge foot" idea on this one, but mine look different.

Plug it in and go  Grin slow...see what it wishes.

Some of these crazy feet want to move the fabric themself. For my older machines. I still have a few I don't know what to do with, either  Grin

Wanting 6" x 6" I spy panels. For a quilt like this:

Looks like an interesting foot indeed.

I look forward to learning what it can do.
Does it fold the hem for you?  Does it trim the hem whilst it's sewing it?

If it does produce a neat, tidy, thin hem quickly, I'd look to get one myself Smiley

I'll give that a try  Smiley

It doesn't fold or trim Lilletia.

I watched a couple of vids on youtube which proved useful.

This looks like an overlock or edge foot. It does not cut the edge like an overlock. (Google images for "overlock foot brother" or "edge foot brother" for other images.)

It zigzags over the beam in the center. The edge of the fabric aligns just to the edge of where the needle zags.

It should work with knits as well as woven. If you use a stretch mode along with the zigzag mode, you can get an edge seam that looks a lot like overlock.
