Well, I slowed down the machine and sped up the machine and tightened the thread tension and loosened the tension, of course because I'm a science teacher only doing one thing at a time because if you change everything at once, you will never know what fixed the problem. Finally at the end of the quilt, I loosened the tension on the quilt. After trying 97 other things, loosening the tension on the quilt finally fixed the skipped stitches problem. Giving the machine room to breathe was the solution it needed. I usually run my quilt sandwich pretty tight to keep any wrinkles out, but giving it some much needed room to suck the fabric down into the bed of the machine allowed it to do it's thing and no more skipped stitches. Luckily I didn't get any wrinkles either!
