Question about Juki TL-98Q
The machine runs fine otherwise. I am using the freemotion foot and have dropped the feed dogs. Cleaned, oiled, new needle. Do not have this problem when using walking foot. Obviously, feed dogs help it along, but I need to be able to quilt without feed dogs doing the work.
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

I posted question about top thread breaking when quilting (using walking foot). Finally solved my problem, my solution may help others. Decrease the presser foot tension to nearly 0. Had tried different threads, tension settings, needles. Nothing worked until I adjusted the presser foot tension. Quilting went like a dream, even through seams ect, also worked for attaching binding.
