tie-off stitch count

Recommended Posts

When I followed blocks: tie-off stitch count: 5, and not pause at trim lines. Sometimes, once completed, to cut the threads, sewing melts, is not sufficiently strong with 5 points. Should I pause between blocks and turn up the bobbin thread? Thank you

There are numerous factors that can affect the number of tie-off stitches needed.  We'll figure it out!

1. Does your upper and lower tension appear balanced?

2. What thread are you using in your bobbin?

3. What thread are you using for your top thread?

4. How long is your stitch length?

Hello, I put the answer here too, can be helpful for another user.

 1.- It seems correct tension. 2.- Botton Line. 3.- Superior Thread. 4.- Length is small because it is a small block
