FMQ tension???

stitchbystichJuly 22, 2007

Hi everyone! I am new to this forum and look forward to both receiving and perhaps offering tips on quilting. Currently I am attempting FMQ on my Pfaff 7570. My problem is the tension. The bobbin side(underside) does not seem to have identifiable stitches like the top does. I have tried adjusting the bobbin tension and have the correct needle for the type of thread I am using. Any suggestions?

Did you remember to put the presser foot down? That can change the look of the stitches.

Yes, in fact on the Pfaff, there is a middle setting if you will. All works well except I would like to have the stitching look better from the underside. Thank you for the response.
