Help with Hand quilting thread

I am having a terrible time with knotting and fraying. I am using Gutermann 100% cotton thread, I use shorter lengths, I occasionally allow it to unwind as I am sewing but I still get knots where I don't want them. What am I doing wrong. Is there a better thread that I should be using? I even apply a small amount of beeswax to no avail. 

Help please. I am working on Hawaiian flower blocks and there is a lot of turns and thousands of stitches. 

I would appreciate any useful…
