My mom and I made a queen size quilt. Mom decided to machine quilt it with fleece as the inner batting. Didn't work well, but she already had the center quilted when she gave up. We took it off the sewing machine and put it on a hand frame and used it to quilt by hand.
We are a group of amateur quilters. Some of the group had never even held a needle before. So, I told them to let the thread drop when they were at the end of the thread because they didn't know how to tie a knot in a thread. I was running back and forth threading needles for everyone!
Now, the back looks absolutely awful and is full of untied threads and loooooong tangles. Is there a way for me to "seal" these threads, instead of tying knots in each of them (and burying in the quilt). Mom and I are going to put a muslin back on it (to hide the nasty mess) so the "look" is not an issue.
I thought about fingernail polish on the thread ends or maybe that Fray stop type stuff. Please, I'll take any suggestions. Thanks.
