But lately when I get to the bottom, it is all wavey, like 2-3inches worth of waves.

I know the top is squared, somehow in the process of basting it, I am either stretching it too much or letting it get "taken in" too much. I just cant figure this out, so I can stop doing it......any ideas?

    try measuring your quilt across the top, next to the take up roller. Then measure it along the backing roller each time you advance your quilt. These 2 measurements should be the same and stay constant throughout your quilting process.
