Hi I am hand quilting a full size quilt on a hoop. I have to quilt with my fabric fairly loose on the hoop because if I quilt with the fabric very tight it hurts my thumb. While I've read it is good to quilt with your fabric loose I've noticed at times I have trouble with the backing fabric either puckering or wanting to pucker. I basted with safty pins and pinned about every 4 to 6 inches. Any suggestions?
