How to make a Quilters knot
The first time I saw someone make a quilter's knot, I was blown away!
I use this knot all the time and often make one as soon as I've cut my thread and threaded my needle - often without realising I've done it!

If I am sewing my EPP shapes together with a really fine thread such as Wonderfil Decobob, I will wrap my thread 8-10 times before forming the knot.
