    I've used perle cotton, also. When I tied my first quilt, I was taught to space the ties the width of my palm. I tied the first bed quilt I made. It's been washed many, many times and dried in the dryer, and it has held up really well.

    That's what I do. One of my boys loves tied the best!

    That is how I do mine too.:)
