Might be the thread. Try a different thread and see if your problem continues. Good Luck in finding the answer!

I'd probably take 2 stitches on the point.
see if that helps

Use a different piece of fabric. I had problems with the machine skipping stitches on one knit fabric and on a another knit fabric it stitched perfect. Make sure your needle is all the way in before you tighten. I would definitely try a different fabric...same stitching...trying to make the corner.

Did you try re-threading the whole machine? Sometimes this helps as well.

I know thiis sounds silly but, are you turning the wheel backwards to put the needle into the fabric when you are turning? I can't imagine what else would cause that.

I'm stopping with the needle down, pivoting the quilt, and then start sewing again....I've tried everything and it keeps doing this.
Wait till the needle starts it's way back up...then it'll have completed the stitch. If you do it on the way down the stitch is not complete.
Wow I can't believe the little things that I learn here!!! :thumbup: Thanks leatheflea for this thread!! Thanks quiltinghere for this info!!!
You welcome -
LEATHEFLEA just barely bring the needle up but not out of the fabric...stop...lift presser bar, turn fabric, lower presser bar, and start sewing....like RedGarnet said - making sure you're turning the hand wheel (if you use one) in the right direction (usually towards you).

Practice on scrap fabric till you get it right - good luck

that are starting a NEW section and when you lift the presser foot it is releasing the last stitch you made!

try going one stitch past where you want to go back and start...that way it will lock in that point stitch

No my machine has the automatic needle down when you stop.
