    I've been using the washable glue on bindings for years. I love the NO pins factor. Also have used it when matching a print, before sewing the joining seam. It holds everything in place so the print matches exactly.

    Thank you so much for the tute and thanks to everyone who asked and answered questions and gave additional comments. I am definitely going to try this on my next runner and then work up to full size and larger quilts!

    I'm thinking it wouldn't work to mix up diluted glue and put in a spray bottle, if you are planning on saving the extra. The glue would dry shut in the nozzle and trying to clear that would be a pain or impossible.

    I"m printing this and putting it by my machine. Then I'm going to keep following this thread to learn more...

    This is as radical to piecing as a rotary cutter was to scissors.

    Many thanks.

    Great idea. Thanks.
