    Started a Baby Quilt....

    It has been awhile since I have made a baby quilt. But an online friend has asked me to make her one for her new grandbaby. I decided on this bright and colorful fabric for the front and then added the clown appliques. For the back, I chose a dark blue that has rocket ships all over. Now, as soon as I finish reading and looking on the Board for a little while, I will go into my sewing room and get it all put together. Have any of you tried using the Elmers Washable School Glue for tacking/basting a quilt? I did my last project (which was small) this way and I loved it. So, I am going to try it on this bigger quilt and see if I like the results. Thanks for looking and have a great time creating!

    Makes think of a circus. I like using the glue for applied. Never tried it for basking a whole quilt. Be sure to let us know how it works

    I've used elmers washable glue for piecing but not for tacking the quilt sandwich together. I use spray baste that I buy at Walmart. Works great.

    I don't know how you did it, but your quilt looks like a vintage antique quilt. Love it!
