Thanks to you both for your advice on the quilting frame. My backing rail was definitely too low, and the fabric was pulled up to the machine instead of sliding onto it.  I was able to adjust the height and that helped a lot. I think it was all pulled too tight as well, and I loosened it. I also tightened up all the screws that could be tightened on the frame itself, and put the base back over the arm even though it means I have only about  3 inches of width to work with. It's MUCH better. I'm able now to do a looping meander. It's not great, wouldn't win any prizes, but it is fine. This quilt is for a child who needs comfort, not for a quilting show.

Thanks again.

Quilting on the frame will get easier the more you do it.  Have fun.

Judy, so glad that your quilting frame is adjusted for you.  You'll have many fun hours quilting on it.  I think you learn a lot as you go. 

Happy Quilting,
