Welcome to the Quilting Board!
I have used Elmer's school glue in applying machine sew bindings and for applique. I appreciate you posting the link for this. So much easier to keep the strips straight.
Thanks for posting! Didn't know that Sharon Schamber had a daughter.....and such a talented one, too!

I watched the tutorial but I don't get it.........why glue a strip and then sew over it???? Isn't that redundant?
I agree with joym, I don't get it either.
I appreciate your posting the link, but I also don't see any need to glue the strips. I've made dozens of string quilts and it seems to me she is just complicating what should be an easy process. I do not use pins to make string blocks, and I make them on muslin. I just flip and sew, aligning the raw edges as I go. If I had to stop and glue and heat set between every strip, it would take twice as long, thus defeating the goal of a quick quilt.
Why waste the time gluing it just sew and be done with it.
Have a nice day and a safe one too!
Live today not tomorrow because it may never come!
Thanks for the tutorial. I like the idea of a bit of glue and no pins. However, I make all my string blocks without any foundation. They are always straight and get trimmed to size in the same way.
quilting makes our lives go round so sweetly
