    Are you showing that you used Elmer's glue to sandwich your quilt. By the way very pretty.

    Oh cool!!! Thank you!! Now question- for whatever reason I thought you dilute the glue with water and spray it on. Using dabs more secure?? And, do you iron it down? Thanks so much!

    I like this but my hands won't squeeze that bottle very long. I have arthritic hands. Any suggestions. Could you put it in a plate or pan and us a foam brush to spread it?

    It is from the Turning Twenty booklet but I used 30 fat quarters and doubled up on the green and cranberry ones. Easy to do and effective. Glad you liked it.

    I was told you can put half water and half glue in a spray bottle and then add 5 drops of liquid dish soap, then swirl the dish soap into the water and glue with the straw attached to the nozzle and spray it on. I will be trying this as soon as I get an empty bottle. Remembering to rinse out the straw and nozzle after each use. Sounds like a win/win soultion to me. Let me know if you try it out before I do

    Yes, I did. I let it dry overnight or you could iron a smaller quilt to make the process go faster.

    I've used the school glue for QAYG for holding it all together. I had good results with it that way too.
    Thank you for the heads up about Piscasa I did that last night and posted picture too but with no explanations I wish I could link the two posts
