• How To Make a Quilter's Knot

    In my e-book How to Bind a Quilt, I mentioned something called quilter's knot. That kind of a knot was recommended in one of the chapters.

    Since then, I have received a few requests from people asking me to explain how to make it, so that's what I'm going to show today.

    This knot is very easy to make, but the process is hard to explain with words. So I decided to make a tiny video clip that illustrates it.

    The video should load and start playing directly below. If for some reason you can't get it to play, drop me a line and I'll see what I can do.


    You should perform the following steps (it's an explanation of what you are seeing above):

    Thread a needle.
    Take the other end of the thread and bring it around so it forms a circle.
    Press the end of the thread to the needle and wrap the thread around the needle 3 or 4 times.
    Pull the needle through until the knot forms at the end.

    I also included a few images below to highlight one key point.

    Here is where the end of the thread should be pointed.

    And this is the wrong way to do it.
