After the quilting disaster on my Swoon block, I was a little discouraged about ever getting the tension right on my long-arm. Then I Googled “long-arm tension problems” and found a video by Jamie Wallen titled “Taking the stress out of long-arm tension”. Thank you Jamie! He helped me enormously in getting the right bobbin tension. It is totally different than how you handle tension on a domestic machine. With that problem solved, I was ready to try quilting my Dancin Nines quilt.
I’m so happy with how the long-arm is quilting now. Life is good!
