What foot should i use for quilting. i have a brother vx-1435


Your best option will be a "walking" or "even feed" foot. Your Brother dealer should have them in stock.

What to do if sewing machine is puckering?


Depends on why the seam is puckering. Read this: http://www.amefird.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/01/Minimizing-Seam-Puckering-2-5-10.pdf
Offhand, it sounds like you need to reset the top tension properly.

The top two photos here are the upper and underside of a single ply of muslin sewn with a balanced tension. The blue thread is on top, red in the bobbin: http://www.picturetrail.com/sfx/album/view/22521551 -- that will give you something to shoot for.

While trying to free motion quilt on my juki TL-98Q, it becomes very hard to move the quilt whenever I come to a seam. I have already turned the pressure foot dial to the lightest setting. I simply


I have never used a machine to free motion quilt. That said, I have had issues sewing over thick seams. Since your machine runs smoothly otherwise... I think it is the thickness of the seamed area that is causing your problem. It may be too late but you could try trimming your seams so the layers fabric graduate to full thickness. Or you could use a chop stick or popcicle stick to press down on the thickness as you guide the machine over the seam. I also suggest that you Fan your seam allowances where your blocks come together. You can see how that is done here. http://www.allpeoplequilt.com/videos/v/62207505/machine-minute-bulky-intersections-fanning-seam-allowances.htm

On my bobbin side of the materal after i sew its just tons of thread on that side and the stitch is not tight


Loose on bottom indicates trouble with top tension. Re thread your machine with the presser foot UP. sew a test seam. If you still have problems adjust the top tension. sew a test seam. If you still have problems clean between the tension discs with some sturdy fabric and unwaxed dental floss. Sew another test seam.

Still problems? Wind the top tension tight then back off 1/4 turns until the seam is balanced.

I love my machine except when trying to free motion quilt. No matter how loose I set the tension it still pulls the bobbin thread to the top. I also have trouble with the thread breaking and stitches...


Properly balanced tensions are critical. The lower bobbin tension must be tight enough to pull the knots down. To which number is your upper tension set? It should be around three. Skipping stitches is an indicator of hook timing and hook/needle clearance issues.

I was making a quilt. The thread snarls and throws loops on the bottom. I think it is the tension. How do I fix it?


The pressure foot has to be lowered to apply tension to the top thread. With pressure foot down, try grasping the thread just above the needle and gently pull downwards to check if there is tension on it. Also try re-threading the top thread from the start with pressure foot raised so thread enters the tension mechanism properly.
Hope this is the solution to get you back to your quilting ... <Ray>
