barbann03 Posted July 31, 2006 Report Share Posted July 31, 2006 This is a question I keep wondering about, and I can't find an answer to it here, and I keep forgetting to ask my mom. How do you adjust your tension before you start your actual quilt? I am working on a "practice" piece and I spent more time taking out the stitches in the first row because I couldn't get the tension right. I am still not sure it's right, but the thread started breaking on the top so then I had to back off. I also noticed that I have a hard time actually seeing what the thread looks like on the bottom. With the light shining through from the top, I still see so much of the top thread. Do you get underneath with a flashlight? lol, I am ready to do just that! Can anybody help me with this one!? I really appreciate all the advice you can find here! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
