Question: How do you make a knotted quilt?

What kind of thread is used to tie a quilt?

To hand tie a quilt, you will need: Yarn, embroidery floss, Sashiko thread or Perle cotton 5 or 8 depending on the final look you would like to achieve. Any needle with a large eye and sharp point. I like to use either a Chenille size 24 or a Sashiko needle.

How close should you tie a quilt?

Before threading your needle, decide where you want to place your ties. Most batting requires quilting at least every 8″ or 10″, when you are tying a quilt I recommend that you keep that number closer to 4″ or 5″ since these ties are just single places of stability holding the quilt layers together.

Do you tie a quilt before binding?

If you want to use strip binding on your quilt’s outer edges, you should tie your knots before you do your binding. On the other hand, if you want to use the pillowcase style (where you sew along the outer edges of your quilt then turn it inside out), you should do your tying after you’re done binding.
