    Interested in what the glue method is

    O.K., I just read the closed thread about Sharon Schambers Elmer's glue method. Sounds interesting, so what is it? Topstitch

    Some people like to use Elmer's washable school glue to attach their binding, They sew the binding to the right side of the quilt and then fold the binding to the back. Instead of using pins to hold it in place for hand or machine sewing, they run a tiny line of the glue just inside the stitching line. They then fold the binding over the glue and touch the spot with a warm iron to dry/set the glue. This keeps the binding in place for their perferred method of stitching it down. The glue washes out when the quilt is washed. This is just a brief idea and the video will help if you are able to view it.

    It fasinates me the things I see on this board. I guess because I have been doing this for so long, more than 40 years. I machine attach the binding to the front and pin that just enough to make sure I have enough binding. When is time to finish the back I just sit down with the quilt in my lap while watching TV etc. and hand stitch the back down rolling it over to the back as needed. If the quilt is really big like King size I might put a small table in front of my chair to hold some of the weight or drape part of it over my round stand up qulting hoop. I guess because I am a hand quilter I am comfortable enough in my skills to do any kind of hand sewing confidantly.
    Trying to sew, quilt or read everyday.

    I use this method most all the time. I dilute the glue 3 parts glue and 1 part water. But I do make sure it is the school glue so I am sure it will wash out.

    When you use glue sticks, do you still iron to set it?

    I tried the glue method and it worked great. I'll continue to use it to avoid pinning. It ended up looking great especially the corners. I had to use the Missouri quilt binding tool for the place where you join the binding because I did not understand the Sharon schambers description but otherwise it went really well.

    I do this also. And use glue sticks to hold applique pieces down instead of pinning or using Heat and Bond.

    I use the stick glue and use the iron to set. No issues with the machine needle when I sew it down.

    i use elmers school glue, roxannes basting glue and glue sticks.. All of them work great for me... the roxannes glue has the tiniest tip so that works great for smaller pieces and hard to reach areas(mitered corners) and the glue and sticks i use for binding and larger appliques... LOVE IT...
