  1. I'm having a problem with random loops on the bottom of my quilt. I don't understand what is happening all of a sudden. I have quilted about 50 quilts with my Nolting 23". It has a stitch regulator. I just started doing customer quilts and of course this new problem has started. I have used the same Maxilock thread. I have been using the same color on top and bottom. I decided to use the customer's Signature thread as she wished. The tension was all messed up and threw tons of loops on the bottom of the quilt. I adjusted and adjusted and adjusted the top tension knob. Suddenly I realized that the cord from my laser pointer was touching the spool of thread and was the culprit. Now I can't get the tension quite right. I have done three charity quilts as practice to get the tension correct. The machine is still throwing little knots on the bottom at random. I am pretty sure it is doing it when I slow down, but I'm still not sure. Here are the pictures on my blog: Thanks for any suggestions you may have.
