Top stitches are wavy

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I am starting a new customer quilt with dark teal thread. My machine was stitching perfectly. When I go from front to back the top stitches are not straight they kind of zig zag...like one will be to the right and the next is to the left. Another way to describe it is they look wavy instead of straight.

Any ideas what to adjust. I changed the top tension around but it doesn't seem to get better. I have the bobbin set at my normal spot and they stitches look fine side to side, just not front to back...back to front doesn't look awesome but its not quite as bad.

Any advice?

Thanks,

Jen

It's the thread....don't know yet if its the dark color but I switched to orange which I had just used and its stitching fine...going to try to set it up the thread path differently to see if I can fix it...any advice beyond what Dawn mentioned already?

Thanks,

Jen

I tried changing the thread path...it got better but it didn't completely solve the problem. Do you have any other advice? I'm not sure of the science behind what I'm trying to do so I'm not sure what to try next.
