For the last couple of quilts I have finished, I have tried two things I learned on this board:
1. Basting with Elmer's glue
2. Not ironing the binding
Both of these things are WONDERFUL and I will do it this way forever! Everything comes out easier and nicer and without eating up so much time.
I was skeptical on the glue at first and started adding pins, but then I made myself be patient and let it dry all the way and sure enough it ended up working like a charm.
