Two Tip Tuesday – machine quilting

Today, I needed to quilt some samples.  Camels!  Yes, my favorite!

Pyramid and Camel

Checking tension is important when beginning with new threads.  I used a variegated by Signature on top and “Sew Fine” by Superior in the bobbin.

The next two photos show a look at the back tension.  The left one is good.  The right has the top thread showing pokies on the back across the center of the orange backing.

If there are pokies on the back …

#1- the top tension should be tightened.

If there are pokies on the top…

#2- loosen the top tension.

Always check tension!

in quilting,
