I've never done fmq I did this while cleaning machine,  does it look like I'm on the right track?

If you look close at the stitches every now and then you see white bobbin thread on top I'm trying to figure out whats causing this?

Hi,

I am taking a class on Craftsy called Design it, Quilt it. The teacher is wonderful! And she explains all this about tension and threads in one of the lessons. It is the best class I have takeing so far for FMQ.  I think it might be your tension. But I am not an expert on it. The class was on sale last night too. All of the Craftsy Classes were. Hope this helps. Your pratice piece is looking good. :)

Do you have the stitch width and length both set to 0. Also you put a few stitches in the same spot every so often only two or three that might help if it is not your tension. Try both these suggestions hers and mine. Your pieces look good. There are many different designs for fmq :)

Great job for a first timer. I'm sure you'll get the tension worked out.
