Quilter's Knot

Recently I had a comment left on a post by a follower that I wanted to answer.

I didn't realize I could plant peas now (Missouri). I'll do that. I have another question-about your quilt. You're hand quilting this. What do you do to start the thread? Is there a knot and if so, how do you hide it?

Her question was about the quilters knot. This is how I was taught to do a quilter's knot. After a little practice I can do these in just a second.

How To Hide It

Hope this helps!

By the way this time of year there isn't lots going on and I love questions like this. It helps give me ideas for posts that the readers of this blog really want to read about. So keep those questions coming.

  1. Well, what do you know! I remember Mama making a knot like that and now I know why.

  2. I couldn't figure out how to knot the thread when I was done? I just learned how to hand quilt a couple of weeks ago. Thanks!

  3. You and my wife would have so much fun together. He blob is "Maple Cottage Stitcher".

  4. Oh... I wish I still had my mom's quilting frames!

  5. Thank you! I just read this because I've been under the weather but now it makes sense to me.
