What is a quilter's knot?
A quilters knot is a quick little knot that quilters use, specifically when hand piecing or quilting. It is super fast to make and easy to use.
I am right handed, so this is how I do it.
Step one: Pinch the end of the thread between the needle and the pointer finger. I use my thumb and middle finger to hold the needle.
Step 2: I wrap the thread around the needle a few times. The more times it is wrapped around, the bigger knot you get. I usually do it three or four times.
Step 3: I put my thumb over the wound up thread and hold it in place. While i have it pinched in my fingers, I pull the needle through the wound up thread with my left hand. Keep the the thread between the fingers.
Step 4: Keep pulling till the thread goes tight. You will feel the knot form in your fingers. Pull till tight.
There you go! I perfectly formed knot ready for hand stitching and hand quilting.
Have fun quilting with your knots! (Hopefully only the right kind of knots!)
