I have had several people in the last couple of days ask me “how do you bury a hand quilting knot”. Seeing as Mike is home I had him take a little video – it is short and having watched it I probably should have gone in a little more depth explaining – but here it is. With practice maybe I can do more of these – with the hubby’s help that is. He put the video all together. What kind of tutorials are you all interested in ? I do have some on my side bar already.
The main thing you need to remember with putting the knot through when hand quilting is that you do not go through all three layers, you put the needle through the top fabric and catch it in the batting and then do this again when you finish. You can have your knot very close to the fabric or a quarter to half inch away – just make sure the knot is in the batting.
Yes I am using my paddle thimble in this video although I wasn’t showing exactly how I use it – I guess that can be for another video – it is hard sometimes though to get photos – the hands are always in the way!
