What thread tension do you use when quilting?  Should I use a short stitch or a long stitch?  I'm doing a paisley pattern on my quilt, and I'm not sure what type of stitch to use.  This will be the first time I actually quilt one of my quilts, the others I just pieced together, and I'm really afraid of messing it up.  Any advice will be great!  Thanks in advance.

I have read to lengthen the stitch when quilting since it has to go throught the batting and looks shorter. Most books say to so a practice with the fabric and wadding that you are using as the puffiness of the wadding varies a lot.
