This weekend I have read two books on this topic. One says ignore tension setting on the machine as all the work is done with control of foot pedal and hands also feed dos can stay up. It also says start with a slow speed and build up
Now the other book told me to drop feed dogs and adjust tension especially if you get eyelashes and go for it.
I thought I could FMQ but this new machine is a viking HjCLASS 100q and I have never used it before for quilting .it needs some adjustment I'm sure as I am very good at left side eyelashes at slow speed. At top speed everything is fine but the sewing machine motor doesn't sound fine. I is my light weight class machine and I wanted to take it to class next week and FMQ so I need to sort out.
