I have been doing the same...I use the elmers stick glue...it works really well. I have a bunch of videos that I find are helpful on my blog. I post them there and use them often so that I do not have to spend a lot of time searching the net...at least until I run into another issue that I can not figure out. The internet it wonderful for learning how to quilt. I would be lost without it or would have to spend a lot of money taking classes. This site has also been so useful and helpful!
