Welcome to the Quilting Board!
I use this method, but I use the Elmer's School Glue Stick instead the liquid glue. I find I have a lot more control over what I am doing. I put the glue onto the fabric and do not try to put it on the batting. Using the glue stick, the glue is always in a thin application and dries fast, or I can iron it dry very easily.
So glad to hear someone else comment on Sharon Schamber using the same fabric for her quilt "top" and "backing" when demonstrating the rolling on boards method. It has always puzzled me as to why she did that, when it would have been so easy to use a different fabric, and would result in less confusion.
Still have not tried this method but think I will. If the quilt is small enough, I don't have many sandwiching issues but larger ones can be problematic, especially if you have a table that is not large enough.
Wow I wouldn't have thought to do this.
thank you for sharing this info with us. just love it.
I am Quilter Hear Me Roar...
I started using this method a couple of years ago and havew found oit sp easy, but...my fingers get so sore either basting or pinning that thet hurt for a couple of days after. You can be sure I will be using the glue on the two tops that are patiently waiting for me to sandwich them. I do use the glue for my bindings, so I am puzzled why I never thought to use it for this part also. Thanks for sharing.
Will definitely need to try this. Thank you very much for a great tutorial
I have enjoyed this tutorial but have never heard of using the glue. I would think you could tell where it is glued. Does it wash out? Can you feel it? You must not or you wouldn't use it. I am just surprised. Getting a sandwich smooth has always bee an issue for me. So, THANKYOU!
Thank you for taking the time to show this. Nice quilt too!
