I hand quilt everything, always have. This Brother CS6000i is a neat little machine, but I cannot make it sew through two layers of fabric and the batting w/o skipping stitches. I've adjusted tension up and down and I can't make it work. I'd love to learn to machine quilt so small projects could be turned out faster, but it ain't happening. This is my issue in the photo below. Feed dogs are still up, tension between 4 and 5 when I did this. I'm not forcing it through. I can't control it at all when feed dogs are down. It's way worse. I'm so frustrated. I wish someone could come here and figure out how to quilt on this machine and show me how. Piecing on it is great, but I want to quilt on it, too, dang it.
