    that is what i was using! ok thank you. the manuals are horrible! and many say the same thing. i have the workbooks but they aren't instructions per say. its just frustrating when you can see the problem and can't figure it out no matter what you try and it worked fine on 2 other quilted pieces 10 minutes before that were sandwiched the same exact way. they only difference is this is a LONG piece of fabric.

    Sometimes to change the needle will make a great difference. Give that a try. It won't hurt anything..

    One hand on each side, right and left of needle. Holding it flat or rolled.

    ok i just redid it. 4x seam ripping is getting old! i changed my needle plate to a straight stitch needle plate, i lowered the tension a bit more and it came out fine! THANK YOU EVERYONE. i don't like to change all the variables at once then I can't see the problem for next time. So i took a scrap after i was done and kept all the settings the same and then changed the stitch length like Ann L said. I think I will also do this next time too. I've read the straight stitch plate really helps to keep the fabric in place too, glad i ordered it! thank you so much this board is fantastic and quick!
