    Here is the latest quilt I just completed for one of the guilds I belong to...the quilt will be raffled off at our November quilt show so I decided to do some custom quilting to really make it pop...It includes lots of ruler work, ditch work, a bit of curved ruler work with pebbles and ribbon swirls...in the solid areas and feathers in the remaining areas...I love the way it turned out and hopefully it will help sell some raffle tickets for our charity...

    It is absolutely beautiful with exquisite quilting? What issue of McCalls has the pattern?

    Thank you again...I have seen Kim Brunner method of straightening out the leaders...on occasion, I have pinned my 2 canvasses together, rolled and re rolled and even left them overnight...they never really were that bad...at least I thought...since my machine is from 2012 and for the first couple years wasn't used hard at all...
    The only part I didn't see the need for was the pressing and restitching a new hem but I may have to go thru the process again and really check it...
    Like Heidi I am only having this problem on really big quilts...but I want it to go away...
    Mamaahma, so glad this post inspired you to fix the problem...your post helped me out to...I saved the instructions again and will do another diagnostic soon...

    Thanks everyone for the good advice...I haven't checked in for a couple of days and just read the recent posts...
    Heidi...I don't have fabric advance...but I think you are right...even when advancing manually I feel one side is slightly tighter...tonight I just loaded a backing ...right side rolled tighter....so I just rolled my hands around the fabric until I got the same amount on tension...
    Jim....if I pin selvages to rollers I don't worry too much about sides stacking exactly one in top on other..they usually won't unless someone has been extremely careful to square up sides...
    Debbie,I will check the measurements...hadn't thought of that ...yes and I like Bonnie want to know if there is a way to fix that if it is the case
    But, I don't think my quilt shifted...because the sides were always lined up with the painter tape reference points...it seemed to be exact...Yet...my pattern was shifted...I am beginning to think it has everything to do with the laser light...it was tight but sometimes I would adjust it a smidge and and again...
    I have just loaded another big quilt tonight and I am going to do a little experimenting on this one...so I can avoid this mistake if I am making it...

    Bonnie,
    I have also narrowed it down to maybe the laser moving ever so slightly too...it has to be the only thing...in fact a couple of times I have ever so slightly adjusted the laser myself...
    I am going to do a little experimenting with this on the next quilt to see if I can figure this all out...I must be slow...lol...but I am getting on the bottom of this...
    Thanks for your input...
