I want to tie one of my baby quilts. Since this will be the first time I will attempt this technique, I want to ask - How long do I leave the threads on the front of the quilt? Also, will the ends of the thread fray? I have never seen a tied quilt so I can't use one as an example. I have a book by Alex Anderson with short directions about the technique, but the length of the finished threads is not covered.
Any help will be greatly appreciated. I really want to try this so I can sit with my husband while he watches tv in the evenings. Besides, I love hand sewing. Thank You for your ideas ahead of time.
