I was looking for an alternative tied quilt option and came across this Decatur Knot.
Is anyone familiar with this method of tying quilts? I was wondering if the knots held. I like the idea of no tails, but I'm a little obsessive about making sure the knots stay tied. It aggravates me to no end to tie a quilt and then have them come out in the wash or loosen up over time. I've taken to taking two stitches in the same place and then doing a modified surgeon's knot (triple wrapped square knot.)
The graduation quilt I'm working on really doesn't lend itself to tying, just my opinion, but I am no good at machine quilting on my domestic machine and I don't want to send it out to be longarm quilted (usually a 3 month wait in my neck of the woods). I have resigned myself to tying it, but would like to have it be as unnoticeable as possible. This seemed like a viable alternative. Any thoughts?
