My first piece of quilting craft. As expected, work of beginner without quilting technique. The thread was not pull tight enough and stitches length not even and too big. Never mind.
Below are links I found useful but I read them too late:
A good overview on hand quilting
I learnt how to hide the knot from here. Basically make a knot and then gently tug it through the first layer of fabric.
Haven't figured out if the technique shown could be used when a hoop is not used.
I am now doing a blanket stitch to the side of the zip to make it neater....
Thanks to the above link owners for sharing their knowledge...
