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>

    I am a novice quilter and have a Huskystar 207. I am taking classes, and have purchased a "walking foot" which applies pressure equally and at the same time above and below the layered fabric. I also purchased a free-quilting or darning foot. Yes, my Huskystar is a champ at free-quilting! (though I am not yet!)

Could be several things.

First, install a brand new needle, perhaps a top-stitch needle will work better because it has a groove in the shaft that protects the thread. Make sure the needle is the appropriate size for the thread you are using--a needle eye that is too small will cause the thread to hang or shred. When the needle penetrates the sandwich, the top thread forms a loop. If the eye is too small, the thread will not come back up through the sandwich, leaving a loop under the fabric.

Remove the top thread from the machine.
ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot and rethread from the beginning.
Set the top tension to the midway point and retest your machine on a quilt sandwich made of the same fabric layers as your project.. Tension problems are more evident when sewing multiple layers of fabric, so tweak the tension until the top and bobbin threads meet in the middle of the sandwich.

I don't believe you will have to adjust the bobbin tension, but in case you do, be very careful. Mark the tension screw setting FIRST so you can reverse any changes you make. Bobbin adjustments are made in very SMALL increments. Because I tend to use a lighter weight thread for my quilting, I have a specific bobbin case that is adjusted for my quilt thread and I keep my other bobbin for regular sewing. Then I don't have to keep adjusting the bobbin tension when going from sewing a quilt to something else.

Some machines do better with certain brands of threads than others.

Thread loops on back using quilt stitch


You need to put more tention into the Corners, Try puttin a tention of 10 into the Quilt. And it should work fine. 10-12 Maximum, don't go pass 12 because it will probably Rip, or Shrill up. Hope this Helped.

Thanks for Using FixYa! -CA

My Pfaff Classic Style Quilt 2027 is getting large thread snarls on the underside of the fabric.


Top tension problems. Tighten the tension.. and make sure you hold the threads when starting a seam.

Stitch too tight on top, too loose on bottom


This is a problem with thread tension. The needle thread is too tight and the bobbin thread is too loose. I don't have one of these machines, but there should be either screws or knobs to adjust. Look at your manual. Here's a page I found on bobbin tension.

When free motion quilting I get loops on top of the fabric and on the bottom when doing tight curves. I also get thread "puke" - tangles and snarls on the bottom when going through the quilt...


Check the height of the quilt under the machine-adjust the bars until the quilt is just barely over the bed of the machine, and level front to back and side to side. Also, level up the frame, using a long carpenter's level. You'd be surprised how much this can help with all sorts of thread problems.

Try threading the machine with the presser foot up and see if the loops and snarls go away.........

When the foot is down during the threading, the tension control is closed and the thread cannot enter as it should.

No tension control of the top thread and the bobbin thread cannot connect for a proper stitch.

My machine is skipping stitches when I free hand quilt & the top thread is looping on both the top & the bottom


Make sure you have your thread through all of the thread guides, If I feel I need a little extra tension I loop my thread through the bobbin tension guide on top of the machine, especially if it is a fine or silky thread for decorative work. Make sure your bobbins are wound tight and also threaded correctly. When freehand quilting you should sew at a moderate speed and make sure to move your fabric smoothly with the speed at which you are sewing, you may just have to practice a bit like I did...If none of this works you may need to take your machine in and have the tension set on the bobbin housing itself..

BOBBIN TREAD LOOPING UNDERNEATH


looping thread on the bobbin side means that the upper tension is too loose... make sure it's threaded correctly.

Skipped stitches & looping on the bottom of Quilt


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!

Yet another stitch tension problem...


Thank you, thank you! I just tightened the screw on my bobbin case and that instantly fixed my thread tension problem. How on earth are you supposed to know about the little screw?! I thank you so much for the tip!
