For me, whatever it takes to do the best job you can, is the right thing. If you want to use glue, GO FOR IT!

Just need to clarify something here. To dphelps: I hope it was just a typo--should be tonnie Loree {not Lorae}. I have a different spelling name. When I post, I don't want anyone to get us mixed up. No offense to you Tonnie Loree. I too have only been here a few months.Thanks

This was friendly and made in jest. What do you not, police, get about it?

Yes! I agree with you. Glue? Come on now. I got out of the second grade 30 years ago.

I saw one of Sharon Schamber's videos (Stash & Dash I think) where she said that she doesn't use pins at all. She was sewing a pinwheel block together and sew put a tiny line of glue all along the entire edge to be sewn.

I haven't tried it yet, there's nothing I'm working on at the moment that needs that type of accuracy.

I am always hearing of new methods for quilting. Sharon Schamber uses glue often and she does some fabulous work! I like using her starch method for piecing and appliqué. I'm glad you discovered this new quilting group and will be learning new methods. Please share what you learn with us. :-)

I wished I had known about this a while a go. I put a piping strip between the border and the body of the top and in some places I noticed later that it wasn"t even. I could have glued it and it would have been even.

Sigh........ I have the most perfectly matched bargello quilts from using a wonderful glue stick. Awesome tip to use.

I was wondering about the same thing! I went to office supply stores, hardware store, walmart, etc. I would also like to know where she got the tip she uses??? If anyone knows, please pass along the info. Thanks
