I am half way around the vintage quilt now and thought I would take a break and share this. I am really enjoying this a great deal. It is a chilly, cloudy, rainy, and rather bleak day but my tea kettle is warm and Molly is here on guard as always as I stitch happily away!
|Start from the bottom folded edge and hide your beginning knot. Then pierce the needle through all layers about 1/4" above the fold and bring it down on top of the loop.|
|This is how it should look as you pull the needle through.|
|Now pierce the needle back front to back through the bottom of the taught lower portion of the loop.|
|Next bring the loose end of the thread or yarn first beneath the needle than over and across the front.|
|Gently but firmly pull until the knot tightens.|
|Repeat the next stitch.|
