If your bobbin thread is pulling to the top, you need to loosen, not tighten, your top tension.  Also, make sure your quilt is not too tight on your frame.

Do you have a Towa bobbin tension gauge?  That really made getting then tension right a lot easier for me.

Leigh, Betsy is correct on both notes especially to loosen not tighten the top thread.  Lots of things come into play with tension.  Did the tension change on the same quilt?  Did you change bobbins?  Even if it's the same thread it can be wound on the bobbin differently.   Have you dropped your bobbin case?  Sometimes that will mess with your bobbin tension.  Fabric and batting types come into play also.  A Towa gage is a great tool especially if you wind your own bobbins.
