    A post today mentioned using glue to apply a binding to your quilt. This is the tutorial I saw that completely changed how I do my bindings. Sharon Schamber has excellent instructions.

    http://www.sharonschambernetwork.com/default.aspx

    At the very top go to classes, select Free classes,and scroll down near the end for the binding. I didn't like it until I tried it and it made a huge difference on the look of my quilts. There are many other classes there you can enjoy. I just saw one to square a block. Excellent.

    I love this method, too! I learned about it from this board when someone posted it about a year ago!

    Thanks for sharing this again. This was a life saver for me! :)

    i tried it but evidently got too much glue and it went right through my fabric. i may buy roxannes with the tiny tip and try again.

    Thanks for posting this. I've read on here about gluing the binding, but I couldn't see how it would be easier than pinning. Wow! She is GOOD!

    I use this method as well. I make one variation, and that is that I pin the binding to my quilt top to attach it, but I glue to the back before sewing. I was "bothered" by putting glue on my quilt top...I can't explain it. I know good and well that it won't be seen, and if there were some mess, it would wash off...but I just can't bring myself to do it. :lol:

    I've been wanting to try this but can't find the extra fine tips to use with my glue bottle. Where do you all get yours?

    I've tried the glue method and it was the best binding I have ever machine sewn on. HOWEVER, I found glue tips that popped off if the bottle was squeezed too hard -- what a mess that made. Please tell us the proper brand of tips and where to find them.
