    Does any of you use a BLQC to free motion. I have one and when I free m q the back side gets funny. I tried the tension at different setting. I was wondering if I should play with the bobbin tension. I usually quilt on my Viking, but wanted to set the BLQC on the handi quilter.
    Thank you for all your help

    Thank you, I played with the tension and it is giving me a nice stitch. The manual said to set the tension at 1 or 2, I put it between 3-4 and it is working. I now have it on the frame and will try to load a quilt tomorrow.

    I am having a problem with loading. I have the back & front on and than I put the batting in place, I am confussed about what to do with the bottom part of the batting. Is it pinned or just left to hang.

    Hi, it is me again. I have my BL set up and the stitch looks good but now the thread is breaking, any ideas. I am using maridia poly thread. I love quilting with it. It is an embroidery thread. Thank you for all your help. My practice didn't look too good. How long did it take you to get use to this kind of quilting.
