    Yes the iron is just to dry the glue faster.
    Good tip... I never thought about Elmer 's not being water soluble.... Thanks!

    This is great. Thanks for posting. I might finish the double wedding ring quilt I started years ago using this method.

    Thanks for the tip. I've stayed away from curves because of all the pinning, but may try this method out before giving up.

    I baste my sandwiched quilts with glue rather than pins. Do make sure you get Elmer's Washable School Glue--the "glue all" isn't water-soluble.
    Courtesy is not optional.

    I'm using this applicator tip. Fineline® Glue Applicator Tips ? Pile O' Fabric

    I'm not that impressed. It's leaking around the base of the metal prong slightly. You also need a fresh bottle of glue because if it has thicken up at all, it won't work. I think the regular tip that comes on the bottle would work fine or that enlongated plastic applicator tip she sells.

    Her tutorial is helpful: Glue Basting Basics // Technique Tutorial Tuesday ? Pile O' Fabric

    Thanks for any clarification.
    One of the tutorials I saw on glue basting said the fabric won't stick together well enough without the iron. The heat is needed to form a good bond.
    I haven't tried it yet, but that's what the tutorial said.
