I have a prestamped and prequilted baby quilt. Any tips on how NOT to show any stitches on the back? Also I guess you can't knot the thread...so what do you do with the tail of the thread? -- Monica from Georgia
- I stitch these sometimes when I can get them for the right price. I truly don't do anything else when stitching.I leave a trail inside the bib and use a fine needle so that I don't go thru the bib. Happy stitching. -- Susan Howden from Cocoa Beach -- Jan 05
- It does not matter how it looks on the back as you will put a 'backing' (fabric to cover the back of your front to make it a quilt). Don't do knots. Instead take one thread and fold it into 2. Thread the needle from the to ends side. Your first stitch will go in and put it through the loop that you have at the back, so, no knot at the beginning. For the end, go through the back stitches so you don't have to knot. Hope you know what I mean. Google instructions to start a cross-stitch, maybe they have photos with instructions. -- Arke from ON, Canada -- Feb 15
- I do these and end up putting a backing on it to cover the threads.I match up some material that way the user can use it both ways -- debbie from ky -- Apr 02
