how do you begin and end your stitches when quilting? More specificaly, machine quilting?
I read an article that talked about bringing the bobbin thread thru at the end and tying it, but I couldn't figure out WTH they were talking about. THen I discovered the locking stitch on my machine, but that leaves this ugly knot on the *outside* of the quilt, which I'm sure will get cut and then unravel at some point.
So, I've started doing backstitching. But I'm wondering if there is another, easier, more appealing way???
