Chantel is my youngest sons girlfriend, she is absolutley lovely and very good for my son. We all love Chantel and it is her 21st in two weeks time. I have had this quilt top made up already and it is perfect for her.
I have been busy trying to machine quilt it over the weekend, but!!!!!! I have started useing rainbows thread by Superior threads as it is a lovely embellishing thread with The Bottom line in the bobbin. I have had alot of trouble getting the tension right. it seems too tight in the bobbin and the stitches have a stringy look. So!!!!!!! I have been altering the bobbin tension to find that that has not corrected my problem as then the bobbin thread shows on the top line like little bubbles of thread coming through.
I then searched the internet for info on tensions and found this great pdf by Superior Threads on everything you need to know and do when using any of their threads.
After trying their suggestions I found the look much better, but decided to undo the quilting I had already done, about 1/4 of the quilt and redo it with King Tut as I like this look better.
Here are a few pics of the quilt before I undid the quilting.

Looked Great on top of Quilt but tension wrong underneath[/caption]
Hope you can see this as my photo has not come up as clear as I would have liked.
Any suggestions on this would be appreciated.
