When I FMQ, I always have threads that come from where I stop and start. The more stops and starts (the more complex the quilting) the more threads there are. I used to just snip them close to the quilt. No longer! For about six months I have been burying my threads using easy-thread needles.
Here is Comma Sutra, all quilted:
|Straight-line on the white sashing, FMQ stippling/swirls in the blocks|
|Easy-threading needles. It makes it so simple to bury the threads.|
I find this method very sturdy and a great finished look but very, very time consuming. And that is where I am with Comma Sutra- slowly burying each and every thread. But then binding is next- this quilt might even get done this week!
