    I love this idea. I use elmer's glue with the special tip for all my binding installations. I read just the other day how some use just a little dab on those matching seams instead of pins so I tried it. Yes, it works like a charm so I may be investing in Elmer's Glue with all the ways we can use it in our quilt making. Thanks for this tip as I've always been afraid of circles.

    Pam this is going to be so helpful! Thanks for the tute! I bookmarked it in three different ways so I can find it again.
    I have two questions:
    Where can you buy heat resistant mylar?
    Forgive my ignorance, but in your last step, what does "open it up" mean?

    I think I could do that! You have made it look so easy but I know "easier said than done" for sure! Still I want to try this!

    I believe there are several different brands of the no-melt, or heat resistant, mylar plastic template sheets. I got mine at Amazon in the 12"x18" size for this. They also come in packs of 6 sheets of 8"x11". I use them for applique shapes too, like all the hearts in my avatar picture.

    Actually, it's not that much work. After you do the first one, you'll never look at circles quite the same. That's how I did my Yin-Yang quilt - I had double interlocking circles inside a circle. http://www.quiltingboard.com/picture...d-t210934.html

    I must be the only idiot, but even with those pics, since the steps aren't lined up with the photos, I can't figure out how it was done. Duh. Old age takes its toll. LOL.

    I see in your photo the glue using a very fine tip. Where did you purchase the tip you are using?
    I appreciate your help.
    Saw a lady on I believe it was utube wrap a piece of scotch tape around the tip at an angle to get the small pointed opening. I am going to try it. I have trouble with those little tips that come with the plastic bottles. I tend to misplace them somehow.
