When hand quilting, how do you all tie off your thread? Do you knot or not knot?

I knot. It was interesting, at the first Quilt show in Long Beach I ended up with two hand quilting classes by different instructors. One knotted the other didn't.

I don't knot......I bury it in the batting about 2 or more inches from where I begin stitching.....and I finish a line of stitching the same way.

I do now. A long time ago I didn't but Jim gave me a book for Christmas a few years back and it had directions that even I could follow. It shows how to wrap the thread around the needle and when you pull it through, it makes a knot and goes under the fabric. I end all my handquilting like this.

Yep, same here. It was like magic when I found out how to do that :)
