    When the glue is dried, can you feel each glue spot? What about sewing over the glue?

    Can you explain about the straw?? Do you put it on the spray bottle?

    There is a straw inside the spray bottle it pokes into the noozle ( it is already in the bottle - it is the part that sucks the water up when you squeeze the trigger on the noozle) Sry if I was unclear

    Carslo - your very welcome! The tute on your blog was great, and the link is there for anyone to follow. I just wanted to relieve some of your frustration on not being able to post the photos!

    What does the dish soap do?
    I had a 15 inch sq to sandwich for a test piece and used a glue stick on the backing put down the bat and then used my spray
    i just smoothed the lumps with my finger worked great

    I have done 4 queen or king size quilts using the above method. Yes, I could feel and see the dried glue when I FMQ but if dry there was no trouble sewing, I tried to do a quick applique the other night of a star on a tree and I didn't iron it well enough and the glue did gum up my needle slightly. It has to be dry for the best results. I did let my larger quilts dry overnight and had no trouble.
