I just bought 10 yards of batting at Joann's and they gave me the big round tube and now I know what to do with it! Thanks for the tut and for the tip on using this big tube!

I use this method, but I use the Elmer's School Glue Stick instead the liquid glue. I find I have a lot more control over what I am doing. I put the glue onto the fabric and do not try to put it on the batting. Using the glue stick, the glue is always in a thin application and dries fast, or I can iron it dry very easily.

The link below is for Sharon Schamber's method of using the boards for hand basting. I found the basting a bit tedious and resorted to quilter's safety pins. The next quilt I do will be basted with the Elmer's Washable School Glue. I wish she had used a different color of backing fabric to demonstrate her method and she is doing a small project. That being said my DD and I have used her method for quilts up to king size. I have two folding plastic tables butted end to end for the big quilts. The demo is in two parts I believe. Up to now I have used double sided scotch tape the secure the quilt top and backing to the boards but I am thinking that covering them with the flannel would work.

So glad to hear someone else comment on Sharon Schamber using the same fabric for her quilt "top" and "backing" when demonstrating the rolling on boards method. It has always puzzled me as to why she did that, when it would have been so easy to use a different fabric, and would result in less confusion.

Still have not tried this method but think I will. If the quilt is small enough, I don't have many sandwiching issues but larger ones can be problematic, especially if you have a table that is not large enough.

I started using this method a couple of years ago and havew found oit sp easy, but...my fingers get so sore either basting or pinning that thet hurt for a couple of days after. You can be sure I will be using the glue on the two tops that are patiently waiting for me to sandwich them. I do use the glue for my bindings, so I am puzzled why I never thought to use it for this part also. Thanks for sharing.

I have enjoyed this tutorial but have never heard of using the glue. I would think you could tell where it is glued. Does it wash out? Can you feel it? You must not or you wouldn't use it. I am just surprised. Getting a sandwich smooth has always bee an issue for me. So, THANKYOU!

The glue does wash out, it has never gummed up a needle of mine, once it is dry. I'm not the original poster but I appreciate her tutorial. I love Elmer's Washable School Glue. It's the only way I baste anymore.
