I am attaching this picture because I'm trying to figure out this tension problem on the back of the quilt. First off, since I finished this quilt, I have had no tension problems on the other quilts I have quilted. I had adjusted the tension several times on this quilt and it had worked perfectly for part of the quilt and then would hiccup this issue; quilt merrily along and then "hiccup" and then quilt merrily along again and "hiccup". When it happened, I was sure it was a hook & timing issue, but I checked that and rechecked it and it was okay. So, I'm wondering if this was an issue with how the needle was positioned. I'm legally blind in my left eye and I try my very best to get the needles positioned so the eye is dead center. Some people say you should position the needle to look a bit to your right. What do you think? Is this a needle position issue? What do you think causes this kind of tension issue? I did have my stitch regulator on with So Fine #50 in top and bottom.
