It's been a few weeks since I started the "In the Studio" video series and over the past few weeks I have had many readers ask about the glue basting technique I use. Glue basting is a great technique that can really help you achieve accuracy when piecing. Months ago my friend and fabulous quilter Cristy Fincher shared a video tutorial about glue basting here at Pile O' Fabric which you should also check out. Today I decided to re-address this super helpful technique with another short video that I put together for you all. Glue basting is one of those techniques that seems to strike controversy amongst quilters. I often hear comments like, "seems like a big waste of time and materials when you could just use a pin". But, before you write it off completely I urge you to give it a try at least once. Usually those who I have spoke to that just said, "whatever, I will give it a try" ended up absolutely loving it. Right away you will notice a huge improvement in your accuracy and once you have started to build glue basting into your regular quilting routine you will notice that you can actually save time. Accuracy + Saving Time = Fantastic!
