    Default Thread tension question

    I'm finishing a t-shirt quilt working with filament thread on top decorative thread on bottom and it's pulling on the back, it doesn't look smooth and flat. My tension is at a 1. Thank you

    Sorry, I'm no help. I've never used filament thread. My only suggestion would be to use a practice sandwich & keep adjusting the tension until it looks right.
