    I just tried it for the first time yesterday on a table runner and I LOVE IT! I don't think I've ever had a project lie so smooth or quilt so easily. The binding was a cinch to put on and it was fabulous. I washed it today and it is perfect!!!

    Would love to hear how you ladies do it? Pictures would be great too.

    I just finished a quilt after basting with Elmers glue and it worked great.

    I haven't really tried it before, but I'll take pics today and show as I go!
    You can have any design you want. As long as it's loops!

    Well, so far, so good. I had to baste in sections (I do that even when I thread baste) because I don't have a place big enough to do it at once and I don't get up from the floor so well anymore, lol. It looks good so far and it's STUCK for sure. I'm not at all worried about it coming apart before I get around to quilting it. We'll see how it quilts. There are a couple spots on the back I can see the glue line a bit. I just tried big swoopy swirls straight out of the bottle. The quilt top side, I don't see any glue lines at all and it is smoooooth. :-) I'm anxious to get this quilted and see what I think, but I have a lot to do to get ready for Thanksgiving and I'm not sure if I'll get to it before then.

    Ok, I'm not sure I did it right. This is the kind of glue and the kind of starch I use. I used 100% polyester batting and 100% cotton fabrics. I was not sure that the poly would work. However, it did a great job.

    I wasn't able to do my King today, so I started and finished this cute wallhanging instead!!

    I don't understand using the starch too...why?? The glue holds perfectly fine without using anything else. Actually, from what I read the glue IS a starch so you wouldn't need starch too. I'm in favor of making it as easy as possible.

    Let us know how it works. I'd be afraid the glue would gum up my machine. But, it might just flake off inside and not really bother anything. Good luck!
    Be the best that you can be at everything you do.
