    Binding with glue? I would appreciate if someone would explain and point me in the right direction.

    Go to youtube and search her. She does a very good three part tutorial. I believe it is called "Binding the Angel"

    I love using glue for bindings!! You can make a perfect (?) mitered corner using the glue ( a little goes a long way ) and a steam free iron.
    It keeps the binding together without pins, is easy to sew thru, and washes out.

    I watched this method on a youtube clip. I tried it on a small wallhanging. It worked, but I didn't like doing it. I love doing my binding my hand. It is one of my favorite parts of doing a quilt.

    I do her method for the front and then fold back and hold it with a little glue to hand stitch it. It helps to make sure the binding is the same width all the way around.

    This looks great...my question...does it not get glue on your needle?

    If you do it right, the glue (a very thin thread of glue) should be within your 1/4" seam, and you should be sewing outside of it. That said, I'm sure my gluing wasn't perfect, but the ironing dries the glue and I didn't have any residue on my needle. I tried to keep the glue as close to the edge of my quilt as possible.

    I absolutely love the glue method...I found a two ended glue pen at Walmart, one end has a fine point and it works great. I only glued the binding on before machine stitching to the quilt. I did not like the glue on the back, I just pressed and pinned it before I hand stitched it down. It seemed to be a little messy on the back...Maybe I put too much glue. For the front and corners it was amazing...My wall hangings hang perfectly straight!
