    I've used Elmers & other school glues, in the Roxann's bottle. I found it ta be thick, but that I had more control that way. Good exercise for my arthritis! I do have ta clear the tip out w/water much more often than I want.

    A hint for someone wanting to try using the liquid school glue: I purchased a DecoArt Foam Paint 1 oz bottle from Michaels for around .99. I purchased it after looking at all the water based paint bottles looking for the one with the smallest tip. I rinsed out the paint and when clean and dry refilled it with the school glue. I have been using this bottle for gluing my bindings for several years now. It leaves very small amounts of glue and works very well. The plastic top on the bottle really seals the glue well.

    Someone else on the board had posted this site several weeks ago:

    I got this and the cap fits the Elmer's School Glue bottle perfectly. You get two bottles and seven tips, and the price is right!

    Thanks Jeanie, you really have gotten your money's worth... .99 is my kinda price!

    Thanks Evie for the resource. So much to learn on here, huh?

    Wow ladies some great info. I like all of the ideas for the bottles. I have been a very busy lady and this August 15th I will have the Outer Sashing Tutorial Ready to post. I'm hoping to see some more finished centers posted before than.

    It's always a great day for QUILTING!
    Have an awesome day!

    I have been following along with this thread but won't be putting my orphan blocks together for awhile. I am working on a queen sized quilt that I really want to get finished before I start another project. I know that I am different from a lot of quilters in that I don't like to have too many things going at once!

    I am a big fan of glue basting! I glue baste quilt sandwiches together all of the time. I've used it on bindings, lining up seams & appliqué. I am not a big fan of hand work!

    I just ordered those bottles & tips from Overstock.com- thanks Evie for the info. And big thanks to Jenniky for this great tutorial!

    The tip works great...BUT I SUGGEST WASHING IT OUT WITH HOT WATER AFTER EACH USE. I put this in caps because it's very important. If you don't, you will have a clogged tip & it will be very hard to wash & unplug. Take it from one who knows! I use the liquid occassionally. Mostly I use the cheapest glue sticks I can find. No need to heat set...after about 5 minutes the glue is dry & good to go. I've never had any issues with anything on my needle or feed dogs. And if you get some on the fabric showing, just a damp cloth will take it right out. For me, it's definately the way to go!
