Question about Brother LS-2125 Mechanical Sewing Machine
Your top tension is based on the fabric thickness.. not just a number. Make a test sandwich of all the materials you are quilting with, cotton top, batting, lining, etc. Test your tension on that until you get it right.
The skipping is a symptom of a bad needle or the presser foot not having enough pressure on it. I'm not familiar with your machine so I don't know if it has the ability to add more pressure to the presser foot.

Found a solution to my own problem.... hope this helps someone else. Make SURE the bobbin case is seated correctly! (follow the instructions carefully). Don't put the cover back on right away after you put the bobbin case in. First check and make sure it doesn't move when you turn the hand wheel.
Also, when threading the bobbin make sure the thread passes down through the tension adjusting spring of the bobbin case.

The tread only breaks in the needle. what can i do . i don't get to sew anything . I tread the needle and get everything ready and start the machine and as quickly as that the tread is broken and the machine has not sewn at all.

Try a different needle. Use a quilting or topstitch or even a metallic needle - one that has a larger scarf than normal. The scarf is the groove at the back of the needle where the thread goes while the stitch is being formed. Quilting threads often need more "room" there. I have been told that the Inspira quilting needles are good because they have a thread groove on the front and the back of the needle. Not tried them personally but might be worthwhile for you to consider.
For the looping, you could fiddle with your tensions a little either loosening the bobbin tension or tightening the top, or both. Only ever do this in very small increments. But the good news is that even the "professional" quilters do not have perfect quilt backs - just have a look at them at quilt shows!

the problem is always on the other side of the fabric - if thread bunches up underneath, the top tension or threading is wrong

totally rethread, and do this test, rethread with the presser foot up, pull the thread it should feed smoothly, now lower the presser foot, pull thread, it should barely move. This will seat your thread in the tension discs, Also, don't be afraid to change your needle often.
