Things don't always go right.
When upper or lower thread tension goes wrong... you can't ignore it... It's time to 'unquilt! I have found it works best to seam rip every 2 to 3 stitches from the back side... then turn your quilt to topside and use my favorite slant edge tweezers to lift loosened top thread. After that, I am always worried the stitch holes will show on the finished product, so it's worth a little quilting down time to bring in my trusty water spray bottle to help fluff things up.
