I always made sure to start and end my MQ with tiny stitches, and thereafter hide the beginning and ending threads by embedding them in the quilt sandwich. However, there were occasions I couldn't end my MQ with tiny stitches due to unforeseen circumstances such as thread snapping etc. I still made sure to hide those threads in the quilt sandwich though. Will my stitches be secured in such instances?
I know some quilters don't even hide their stitches. They merely snip off the ends of the thread after locking them with tiny stitches. Is this something safe to do?
