I'm new here. Thought this was the best tutorial
I've ever seen for doing circles.
Now how do I save it, for future reference.
Love this tutorial; thanks for the post and the photos!
Here's the web site that shows how to make a glue basting bottle.
A few weeks ago I found a web site telling how to make your own little tip for Elmers school glue bottle. You pull off the orange cap and cut it back a little with scissors. Then unscrew the end off a inexpensive plastic mechanical pencil (where the lead comes out). Got this at Walmart several in a package. Take the tip from the pencil and push it into the large end of the orange cap, a little trial and error for size to cut off, and screw orange cap back on glue bottle. This works really well for getting a fine line of glue. I put a pin in the top to keep the pencil top from clogging with dryed glue.
I think I watched that video recently and did wonder where she got her tips for the Elmer's Glue bottles. I tried the glue the lady at Shabby Fabrics uses and I had issues with the first bottle and the top, but the company did send me a brand new bottle and tops. I haven't tried them yet, but am really interested in finding the tips to put on the Elmer's bottles.
Thanks for your warning about the glue. I will try it for applique and I usually don't sew the s
same day as I start so it will have time to dry completely . Kathy O/MT
The connecting thread did not work... did it have the fine line tip a available.. I am intesting in testing this method also.. would really like to find a fine tip as I would like to try it to glue bast a quilt binding,
Thank you so much for doing this method of quilting

Thanks Dollycaswell for sharing that. Yup Im with you there. I had to clean my machine, but it was time anyway so I was good with it. I am going to experiment using it with applique also. Thanks for sharing your comments with me.
Good Morning Jenniky, I've used the 'Elmers School glue for raw edge applique and it works great. Yes, you have to be careful about shoving it down into your feed dogs if you get too much in an area. Also, it's best to be patient and wait for it to be completely dry before you sew....ask me how I know... ha ha
Your work looks beautiful, perfect stitching.
Your quilt is wonderful looking, your work is great. Thanks for letting me see how you did yours. Good to see I did mine like yours.
Hi Jenniky, I'd like to join with the rest of you, sorry I'm late. I've done some QAYG in the past and like it, but need to refine my technique. One major question I have for you, thus far, what do we do with blocks that are intended to butt together as part of the beauty of the pattern? I have some large 16 " sort of "pineapple blocks" (I didn't know that's what they are until after I made them!!) The corners are supposed to form a broken dishes type corner. I have other blocks to work with as well, however, similar issue - the pattern connects "floating" blocks to other blocks with 2-1/2 inch sashing. Help.....I don't know what to do??!! And thanks!
Jenniky, You do beautiful work. I think my favorite month so far is the one with the birdhouse. Will be looking forward to seeing the rest.
Jennie - Those are all darlin', I like 'em all.
