  1. I should also add that the backings are not pieced... so I don't have any build up of a seam allowance running down the center of my projects causing extra bulk on the back bar. (PS. If I have a pieced backing I am sure to run it parallel with the frame/bars). Still perplexed.
  2. Hello all! I always float the batting and top when I quilt. In my insane perfectionism, I want to ensure the top is square on all four sides. When I load the top I am very careful to square the top to the frame and have several markings (edges and seams of the columns in the quilt) to keep the right and left sides straight as I progress down the quilt. Every time I advance the quilt I will also use the rows in the quilt top to 're-square' and work in any bulk. (I know that the piecing can be a part of the problem, but that is why I spend so much time re-squaring with every advancement.)
