I made a quilt for my son and when I went to stitch the layers togeter my tension was too tight on my machine.  Now all of my squares are asque.  How do I fix this.  Please don't tell me I have to rip all the seams out and start over....

I want to make sure I understand:  you made the quilt sandwhich (layering the top, the batting and the back), and then stitched through it by machine, right?  And now your squares are wonky and don't line up?  Or are no longer straight?  Do you have a picture you could post?

It would also be helpful to know if you used a walking or darning foot to sew the layers together, and if you had your feed dogs up or down.
