Welcome to the Quilting Board!
Can't wait to try this (on a small item first, of course). I don't see why it wouldn't work. Thanks for all the info, ladies. Donna
I've almost finished quilting my first using the liquid glue method and absolutely love it! By spreading the thin lines of glue on the batting and then smoothing down the top, it assures me there will be no wrinkles or puckers. Then there is the "no muss, no fuss" of spray basting and no fumes! I've had no issues quilting through the glue, even the bigger places where the glue blobbed out accidentally. It does not come loose while moving the quilt around. And the best part is that is washes out 100% when done. I just don't know how much better or easier it can get!
The picture is of a huge moose. If I remember correctly about 60X70 with some very large pieces which used the glue. The smaller pieces were with WonderUnder.
I forgot; that it is also the way I do the large pieces for the backgrounds, that is how I started using it in the first place years ago!

Wow, thanks everyone. I like to do appliqué work on sweatshirts and don't like the stiffness of fusible. I had wondered about using Elmer's for the appliques and now I can't wait to try it. I already bought it to try with quilt tops so I'm ready.
Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, WINE IN THE OTHER, totally worn out and screaming "WOO HOO, what a ride!"
