These Tips Make it Quick and Easy!
Do you leave the job of burying machine quilting threads to the very end? A more efficient way is to bury them as you go (learn more about burying threads here).
Not only do you avoid having a big tedious task to complete once you’re done quilting, loose threads won’t become tangled and frayed if they’re buried right when you cut them.
Beth from Cooking Up Quilts has two great suggestions for burying threads as you go.
First, she keeps a needle handy for doing the job with magnetic tape affixed to her machine (see tape options here). There’s no need to hunt for a needle or sort through a pincushion.
Secondly, she uses a self-threading needle to make the job go quickly (Clover self-threading needles can be found here). Just snap the thread into the needle, bury it and move on.
Learn more about Beth’s method at the following link.

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
