Zipper Foot Binding

I've been frustrated with machine quilting binding lately, so I decided to try using my zipper foot to more easily get closer to the edge of the binding on the front of the quilt. It worked out beautifully! Does everyone already do this and I just didn't know? The results were so much nicer than usual! It was also considerably easier to smooth out puckers as I sewed.

What the binding looks like using my regular foot:

I also tried a binding tip from Crazy Mom Quilts and pressed the binding.
