I think this is brilliant! You only have to thread a needle once and then you can bury all your thread ends after quilting. (I hope I'm not the last person on earth to have learned this.)

Thanks, Nancy. My Grandmother used to do something very similar but I couldn't remember the complete process. Now I can put this method to use.

Great technique!  Will definitely have try this.

The way to get started is to quit talking and start doing.

I tried this once, but my knot kept coming undone. I guess I should try it again.

Definitely going to be using this a lot. I always have some tins and magnets right in my hand sewing corner. One of these magnets now sports my lasso, ready to help whenever needed.

I used this technique yesterday and it works great.  The secret is to make sure your knot is small enough to go through your fabric easily.

I tried this again, and I used a very fine polyester thread and triple knotted it (double knots always came undone - maybe it was the slippery thread?) but it worked so well!

After I watched the video, I realized I had seen this once before but apparently forgot about it. I have now pinned the video so I can refer it when working on my next quilt!  Thank you!

this is a great idea, I do wonder if it will realy be secure wthout a knot.  I have been watching a Bluprint class by Sue Ceveland and she has a few different was of burying and securing the threads.  I will be trying this method though as it seems like its the fastest way.
