    MaryAnn,

    What kind of floor do you have? The only room I have with open floor space is our family room and it has the laminate wood floor. I am sure DH would have a fit if I ironed on it. I wonder if laying down a thick fleece blanket would help protect the floor? Any suggestions will be appreciated.

    I used the glue on my most recent quilt sandwich. Works like a charm! And it came off my laminated floor...I just used a damp mop.

    Sherri, my floors are ceramic tile, but I have a large area rug in the living room I can pin to. If I had laminate floor, I think I would tape to the floor (use the blue painter's tape) and rather than ironing, let it dry. I'm not sure how long it would take, but unless it's very humid, I would think a few hours would do it. I'm sure if we all put our "thinking caps" on we'll find a solution for you.

    If it's true we learn from our mistakes, I'm going to be a genius!

    With 2 or 3 layers of fabric approx. how long to iron the glue dry.
    Have a great day sewing and remember to "not sweat the small stuff"!!

    I was really intrigued with the glue method, so I tried it on a table runner I was making. Rather than applying the glue in a line, I dotted the glue all over the batting about 4" apart. Then I layed the backing on it and ironed. Flipped it over and did the same thing with the top. Worked like a charm. No shifting, nice and neat when quilted, no puckers, etc. I just LOVE this method!

    Could you build a large ironing board and put it on two workhorses? I have one and
    find it very handy for ironing (of course) and now for glue basting.
