Can anybody help me sort this out once and for all. Whenever I attempt to do a large design with dense stitching I get this ruffling/puckering of the embroidered area. I have tried different backing, different tentions, different densities of stitches, different speeds of the machine but all to no avail. It just has this wavey type effect whach throws off the allignment of other parts of the design. I have attached some pictures of the problem on my current project which is a large design on fleece. That is backed with 1 layer of iron on/tear away and 2 layers of medium wei

(there's still considerable puckering around the text) Then I tried it again, this time with a lower tension. It started out fine, but by the time it got to the yellow (the third color), it was puckering again. When I tried to do the black, it had puckered so bad the needle was only going down in one
