I'm new to this board. I am quilting again after taking a break to homeschool my children who are now grown. I've been married for 26 years and my children are 21 and 18. I live in Central Wisconsin. I don't work outside the home except to volunteer at our local crisis pregnancy center two days a week.
I'm glad that I found this forum. The project I'm working on at the moment is a queen size quilt for my daughter's wedding which is on the 1st of August. I know, ambitious. I have already had to rip it out, which brings me to my problem and my hope that someone is reading this.
The quilt is a scrappy quilt of stripes, but instead of the stripes being straight they were all scooping downward before I ripped them out. I was able to ask someone about this and she said it was because the stitches were too tight. My question is this: Do I need to adjust the tension or the stitch length? I'm thinking the tension.
Thank you for your help.
