Hello all... I'm hand quilting a quilt for my DH and loving every minute of it... still have lots of practice and I AM getting better with more consistent stitch lengths. Here is my question: When I pull the thread through after burying the knot, I invariably get a little tuft of batting coming through... and often on the first 1-2 stitches also. I don't remember what batting I used... so... What kind of batting should I use to avoid this?? Is there anything I can do now to avoid it? (I've tried Thread Heaven AND beeswax AND using nothing at all... it doesn't seem to matter on that end...) Please help?? And thank you for your responses!!!
