Dream Big panel thread pulls

Recommended Posts

Customer brought a Dream Big panel for me to longarm on my Millennium. Poinsettia - dark red, green, brown. As each stitch disturbs the fabric thread, there is a white mark / snag / line. It is because there is only colour (dye /paint) on just the top surface of the fibre , so any little movement shows the white base.  I have tried the following: 100 weight thread (Invisafill), size 16 (3.5) needle, looser on frame, lower tension, slow down. Nothing is making enough difference to look acceptable. Has anyone else experienced this? Any ideas? Thank you!

I have experienced the same thing on many other recently produced fabrics from last 2-3 years. Digitally printed maybe?? Haven’t quilted on those panels. I tried what you’ve tried to make it less noticeable. No luck though. Those white threads showing are aggravating! I hope the threads will settle back down after a few washes. But what about art quilts? Hope to read more replies to your question!
