hi all,
I purchased this machine a few years ago and used it for a while with success. I fmq a t-shirt quilt (which is so different from a cotton quilt) and i didn't have any problem with skipped stitches at that time. to note, the function of straight seaming and also when using the quilting foot works perfectly.

When trying to FMQ i get ugly, large skipped stitches. I did have success on smaller quilt sandwiches, so I am thinking it may be error on my part, but not totally convinced
Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

    Did you use a stabilizer? If the material is too stretchy, you will need it.

    no, i am having trouble, (not with t-shirt quilt) but regular cotton fabric quilt.

    Change the needle. Make sure the thread slides easily through the eye. Check your tension. Rethread entirely including the bobbin.

    colores- thanks for your response. I think my thread may have been too large for the needle. Also drag and my moving the quilt too quickly around curves. Lots of issues.
