    Thank you, ladies for your comments. I put the bobbin in and did some sample stitching and played with the tension and it works great. I love not having to change the bobbin as often.

    The way that I approached that was to mark the thickest points on my pantograph overlay prior to doing that row, and then "rerouted" the pantograph around them.

    I can handle thick seams by going very slowly  - or at least I thought I could until I did a heavily pieced batik top.  I broke countless needles on this top and really messed up my machine for a while.  The batik fabrics have a tighter weave and some of the seam intersections were just impossible.  If the fabrics are regular quilting cotton, just go really slowly.  If it is made of batiks I would recommend a quilting plan that avoids those trouble spots.  You may be able to clip and press the seam allowances to reduce the bulk.

    Is it consistently thick or just at seam intersections? If it's consistently thick you can raise the hopping foot, but not more than four business cards.

    Shelia, if you go slowly over the thick seams, you should be OK.  Not so easy to do when you are working on a panto from the back, but you can do it!

    I also have a Lenni.  I had a quilt top with really thick seam intersections, recently, and decided to be on the safe side. I quilted it from the front with an all overall pattern which could be easily re-routed to avoid the big seam bumps. My customer agreed on the pattern and  understood my reason for wanting to do it that way. Because of the seams, I always slow down for pantos.
     
    Let us know what you decide.

    It is more in the middle. I did take a really small crochet hook and poked it through the backing very carefully and got some of it out. It looked like trashy greasy thread. I got as much out as I could and will show it to my friend to see what she thinks if anything. I know I will examine the batting from now on.
    Thank you for replying to my post.

    I also was wondering about right and wrong side for wool.  Thanks again Heidi.  Your answer helped me a lot.  I used the puffier side up on my first wool batting quilt which I have on the frame now, and was wondering if I was right .
