Jenniesthreads Rebecca Although I didn't use it, there is a tutorial out there at www.quiltingfiesta.blogspot.com. I am planning to do one on my blog because my way is ALL by machine and uses no pins which I think makes for a better looking finished project.

Hey y'all. I just posted a tutorial on my blog to explain my process if you're interested. And I'm happy to answer any questions you may have.

Quiltmaven Thank you so much for sharing and lettting us know! The tutorial seems really clear but I still cannot wrap my brain around how one gets from the pin cushion to a pillow top?

Quiltmaven

True Its simply a matter of making a bunch of four-patch units. And instead of making "X" four patch, turn the basted units a quarter turn so that the lines created by the folded squares point out than in. If you used the size I demonstrated to make a pillow you would make sixteen four patch units and sew them together using the same seam spinning technique as attach them all together. This would give you a 16" pillow. Hope this helps.

True

Quiltmaven I think I am going to have to just do this at some point so I can get it!! Is it critical to buy and use the glue you mention or can one use other glue? Sounds like the Roxanne's Glue Baste-It may be quicker acting than another glue?

Quiltmaven

True Use whatever glue you have the most success with. The only thing that would probably not work very well is a glue stick. You want something that'll give you a fine bead of glue...nothing messy.

I'm so in favor of "all machine". This is an amazing concept!
