backing not rolling onto backing bar evenly


Recommended Posts

I have an AOQS Lenni that I've had for about 5 years.  When I do a queen size quilt the backing is never even when I roll it completely onto the backing bar as I'm starting to load the quilt. I am getting ready to do a large quilt and have purchased a good quality flannel backing (preshrunk) and mounted it onto the backing bar with the selvedge running horizontally..  When I rolled it completely onto the backing bar, there is 5" extra on the left side of the bar compared to the right side of the bar.  I have redone my leaders in case they were stretched but it didn't make any difference.  I have measured the space between the take up bar and the backing bar, but there is no difference.  I don't know what else to do.  This has been a problem since I bought it but put it down to learning how to use my machine.  I am more successful with smaller quilts as the difference from one side to the other isn't as noticeable but is still an issue.
