I've had this problem since buying my HQ Amara. The bungee clamps do not grip the quilt top well. They slip off whenever I pull them taut. When I can get them to grip, the quilt is so loose that stitching makes it bounce. That's no good for learning FMQ.
I've tried putting HandiGrip on the "pad" portion of them. It doesn't stay on the clamps and they just slip off anyway. It seems like there just isn't enough grip on the grips.
I've thought of buying construction clamps and attaching those instead, so I could ratchet them down. That is no guarantee of working and the grips on them aren't any better, just the clamping pressure.
How can I fix this so my quilt doesn't bounce while quilting?
