How to Hand Sew a Quilt
Use small running stitches, as small as you can make. A running
stitch is just stitches in a line. You can make straight lines or
any type of pattern such as hearts, circles, diamonds, etc. Use
quilting thread because it is stronger.
To tie the end of your thread, tie a small knot in your thread and
pull it through the top layer of your material so it catches in your
batting. This is how you start hand sewing also. Cut your thread
close to your material after tying.
