The quilt I've been thinking of as "Rogues' Gallery" has made it to flimsy status. I got the last of the columns put together on Monday and affixed the border on Tuesday. Need to get to the LQS for batt and wide white muslin for backing, I think.
I'm planning to tie it, most likely using DMC white floss on the main part of the quilt and blue on the border (photo of the flimsy to come soon). I haven't tied a quilt in a while. Marsha showed me a way to tie so that there are little "Xs" on the fact of the quilt with the knot on the back. I tied one quilt that way and liked how it looked. Recently I've tied with DMC perle, but feel like the knots are more prone to come untied than with the regular floss.
No, that's not my floss box. It is from the internet. Mine used to look like that, back when I was doing counted cross-stitch. No longer . . . .
What do you use to tie quilts? And do you put the knots on the front or the back? Anything else to share on the topic?
