Not being ready to do first FMQ on DD's quilt I did SITD then branched out around the square-in-square feature fabrics and did a kind of lattice around the main border and a single line around the outer border.
By my calculations this comes to 166 knots which was NOT FUN.
Does anybody else not into FMQ run into this problem? It took hours to bring each starting tail to the back and knot them and bury them, and pull the front ending tail to the back, knot them, and bury them. And with polyester fine thread, they keep wanting to pop up from their 'graves'...and the cheater-needle tends to frizz the poly...
Up until now I have not done borders so I stitched edge-to-edge of the quilt, no prob.
If anyone has any suggestions I would appreciate it. All I can think is, don't do this again!
