    Thanks for the tutorial and great discussions!! Love the glue spray idea. Have always pinned and hated pinning but even hated removing the pins even more!

    I have recently basted a quilt using Elmers glue.....I had read where some of you had used a paint brush the spongey type the thought crossed my mind to try a pastry brush from my kitchen drawer.....I placed the glue in the container with a small amount of water shook it up and applied lightly over half the quilt.....this worked fantastic.....I did half a quilt at a time I lightly iron over each outer side after applying........

    No, I quilt and then wash and dry it.

    Thanks to all....will take all of your recommendations and try the Elmer's glue...washable, of course!!! I have not had any luck with any of the other methods...still have puckers with them.

    It should not be a problem as long as it's washable. The problem with clear glue
    is that's it's difficult to see where you glued and where you didn't. Maybe that's just me.

    WOW Carso, Super (Duper) Member!!! Great recipe!! Thanks for sharing. And NOW, what to do now with all my safety pins? Serendipity! I just read this morning how you can use safety pins to keep bobbins organized with the same thread. Pin through one of the holes in bobbins and close safety pin, then slip the closed safety pin (with the attached bobbin) into the hold of your thread spool. This method may not work on small spools. For small spools you can keep bobbins and like thread together by putting bobbin on the safety pin then enclose the spool "inside" safety pin and close pin. The little spool of thread will be inside safety pin along with the bobbin. I learned tip this from Sharon Pederson when she was speaking about thread control.
