The fabrics were different. The sample piece was made from different fabric than the border and backing but the batting was the same. So right now the major difference seems to be the spray basting as the fabrics are good quality quilt store cottons. It's just odd that one side of 2 different built in stitches start out working then quickly just do one side.
Glad that I have led you to some of the differences!

With what you have shared, another possibility may be a different needle is needed.
Not just a new one of the same, but perhaps a different type and size.
I have found that can sometimes make a huge difference when quilting.

If you have the same fabrics, make your next sample exactly as the quilt,
including the spray baste.
While your different fabrics are quality ... there can still be a difference.

Please be sure to let update us, when you get a chance to work on it.
Good Luck!

Hi there! Don't know if this will help ... I have a Juki DX-7, and I've found that, when using the serpentine stitch on a large project, the quilt has to be supported (it can't hang over the side of the table ...), otherwise the serpentine stitch will go a bit wonky!!!

Sometimes it helps to move the needle bar position over to the left or right one notch. It changes the timing just slightly and sometimes fixes the problem.

My machine is inset in a cabinet and the quilt is small so completely on the cabinet. Thank you for thinking about the problem.

I will give this a try on a bigger sample piece that I have spray basted too. When I pulled out the stitches from the failed stitches, it has left holes in my border fabric.
