I am trying to hand quilt a quilt completed recently and have the following problem:
When I am nearing the end of the thread, I put one of those little knots in it (like at the beginning) and attempt to bury it. However despite the fact that I'm being very gentle, the thread breaks...ugh! At that point I see no solution but to cut the knot off and take out a bunch of stitches so I can try again.
There must be a trick to it. I am using pearl cotton because I wanted the stitches to show. Was that a mistake?
Thank you in advance!
