If it's a mechanical machine, most likely the stitch width mechanism is frozen due to old oil. Apply a couple drops of liquid Tri-Flow Synthetic Lube to the stitch width mechanism and then direct hot air from a handheld hairdryer into the area. Repeat as needed until the mechanism moves freely.

Increasing the top tension (and possibly decreasing the bottom tension) will cause the top thread to pull the bobbin thread up.

Did the needle screw (also called thumb screw) become loose and the needle dropped?
Replace the needle, you may have bent it. Even if it is not visible to the eye.

It looks like there are a few stitches among the quilting stitches (Row 2) that are blanket stitches; these are all stitches with a stitch to the left and a line of straight stitch. Stitch patterns 16, 17, and 18 are the ones to check out. Stitch 17 might be closer to the look of a hand-sewn blanket stitch. Stitch 16 has two straight stitches for every stitch to the left. Stitch 18 has a one to one ratio of stitches to the left for every stitch to the left.

You can see the stitches available on the Husqvarna Tribute 140C on the product page: . The direct link to the list is here: . These stitches are also shown starting on page 44 of the manual, .

I hope this helps.
