    505 basting spray?

    I am new to posting here on the quilting board and I don't know if this question has been asked before, but I need help please.

    After using 505 to bast your quilt, do you need to wait overnight before starting to quilt?

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    (By the way, I love reading this board...you ladies and gents are so smart and helpful.)

    Thank you ladies for the info and for the welcome.
    I was told to wait overnight before quilting after spraying with 505. I had not heard that before so wanted more info on it.

    Thanks again.

    my last quilt I used school glue and was very very happy with it. No overspray and very cheap

    I use June Taylor brand basting spray. What I do is spray, then thoroughly tidy up my sewing area (my dining room table) from all the scraps and threads and pieces of fabric from that particular project, have some lunch and get to sewing. So I would guess I wait about an hour.
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    I never hear that you need to wait overnight...when I did use the 505, I quilted shortly after and didn't have any problems.

    I would wait a bit. it needs to dry , otherwise your needle will get gunky. ask me how I know......
    of course, i was a bit heavy handed on spraying that time. so maybe it was just me.

    Howdy and welcome, from Texas.

    Sorry I have no advice on the 505 spray; I use Elmer's School Glue, for basting.
