Well Illene, it looks much better than my attempt - I dare not even post a small picture of mine. xxx

Good job! I would think that if you are getting loops in the back, you may have a tension problem. I would check the owner's manual that came with your sewing machine. There should be a troubleshooting section in there. Good luck and have fun!

The tension needs to be adjusted...but I'm clueless how to do it. Sorry!

Hi Illene, it maybe the tension, but could be how you are guiding the fabric through the machine......today I have done some machine quilting....which I have not done for a long time...not an easy task....Regards Lyn

I agree about the tension - hopefully you have the owner's manual - they almost always have troubleshooting answers. If you don't have it - I bet you could google tension problems with sewing machine. Good luck!

Hi Illene - usually with tension if it is lose on the back than it will be your top tension. Be sure to go to my blog I finally posted and brought it up to date and I added a little birdie surprise for you at the very bottom of my stash organization post.
