Tension on batiks


1 comment

  • Vicky Lundeby

    I had similar problem with a batik-like fabric. I changed to a stronger thread with a ballpoint needle, used a simpler quilting design, slowed the quilting speed to a crawl and tweaked the top tension before I was able to quilt out my project. It was really frustrating, so hang in there. Even with all that, my thread broke a few times during quilting. I think part of my issue was I had the same densely woven, batik-like fabric on the top and backing of my quilt. Good Luck
