I am new to the quilting world, but I am trying really hard. I seem to be having problems with eyelashing and skipped stitches on the front side of this wall hanging, regardless of what I set my tension to. I am quilting 3" stars on this quilt and it continuously skips the "point stitches. You can see where the needle went down at the point, but it still somehow skips it. I only seem to have this problem when I use cotton machine quilting thread and it's fine when I use regular poly???? Also, the cotton thread is one of the large, fat rolls and I have to have it on my vertical pin. I know this can cause tension problems, but I am not sure which way it takes it.
Anyway, if anyone could give me any ideas/ suggestions, I would greatly appreciate it.
