What I’m going to do is tie a knot and ends my thread and poke it back down inside the quilt. So the way I do that is I want to stick my needle down this way so I’m going to put my needle point here. I’m going to wrap the thread just one time around the needle, pull it tight and then put my needle down as close to the end of the stitching where I just came up as I can. I want to go just through the quilt top and maybe a little tiny piece of the bedding. I’m going to push it about a half an inch away. I need to have enough part of the needles so that I can poke it through there and grab it on the other side. And I’m going to continue to hold this thread tight so that it makes the knot and doesn’t get tangled.
So I’m poking it through and as I pull the needle when the thread meets itself it makes a knot and then you can just make a little tiny tug and you can either hear the knot go through or you can feel it go through, got your knot underneath your layer fabric and then your thread is ready to be cut off here, your tail end.
Now, I don’t like to get too close to the fabric when I cut my thread. So I got a little tiny piece of thread showing through here. And the way I get rid of that is to take my needle, poke it underneath the fabric just underneath the top and twist my needle past the thread and it pulls it right down inside the quilt top.
