    Thanks for this info. Do you remember which Turning Twenty book? There's several I know and I have about three of them. I just want to be sure I have the correct book before starting to cut. Thanks again for your help! ~~Ann~~

    It was the Turning Twenty ... Again The 30 Blocks 5 x 6 setting but I didn't put any borders on it just a black binding as it was large enough already I know I stitch Unit B with the 2.5 x 8.5 section to the right of the 8.5 x 8.5 block instead of the left. By the time I figured out I had sewn it incorrectly I was more than 1/2 way finished Unit B so left it that way. I figured it was a scrappy quilt so it wouldn't matter I did 4 dark green fat quarters and 4 cranberry Fat Quarters to give it a more structured look. So glad that you like it.

    I like to make my backing taunt with clips before pinning, so I'm not sure this technique would work? Or could I clip the backing to the table and put the glue on the backing and then lay down the batting?

    Yes I did clamp one of my quilts as it had a couple of wrinkles and I was too lazy to iron it - the glueing process was just fine this way

    Thanks, I'll have to give this a shot. I've not liked fusible batting or spray. I find the layers still shifted way too much. So, I'm curious to see if this would work for me.

    Thank you very much for sharing. We need all the saving we can get, so we can buy MORE FABRIC.

    School glue by the gallon can be found at school supply stores or office supply stores.

    This is a great tip! I wonder if it works with other battings, esp. polyester?
    Gee
