FYI: Any seam that will be intersected or sewn over with another seam doesn't require backstitching.

Start stitching on a small fabric scrap. Sew to edge.

Without lifting presser foot, feed project fabric in next, stitching with recommended seam allowance.

When seam is complete (you can end seam with a small fabric scrap, too) remove from machine; snip off the stitched scrap. This technique prevents seam from puckering at the beginning or having incomplete stitches at beginning or end.
