Tying a quilt

This is crochet thread
this shows starting next row using first row as guideline for spacing
this shows cut thread ready for tying
cutting between each needle bite
you can leave as much thread as you need.  My hands arthritic and I leave extra thread for tying that I trim off afterward.
here you can see I leave extra
first bite of needle, making sure you go through all layers, top, batting and backing and leave tail
I use Dritz Quilting, Curved Needles for Tying.  Comes 4 in a pack, two small, two larger needles.  The Thread is crochet cotton, size 10   I buy a variety of colors and use color to best match quilt.  I used black in example so it would show up.
