    I use the Sharon Schamber method (it's on you tube). Much easier than pins.

    Thank you everyone for you responses! It looks like I'll be spray basting this one. I'm pretty sure my LQS carries a brand that I can pick up tomorrow. It sounds like it would be perfect for my first FMQ. Wish me luck!

    i've been successful with pin basting- but i hate doing all the pinning- when i'm going to quilt with my domestic machine i usually thread baste- just put thread in a big needle- big stitches across- in a grid- for me lots faster than pinning and lots easier to take out after too.

    I pin with safety pins and FMQ. I just be careful and remove pins as needed.

    Glue stick. I usually use spray basting but yesterday I needed a quick tablerunner for a gift. Also I've been using flannel for the batting in the runners as it lays flatter (prewashed).
    I was using a preprinted panel that I cut apart & was adding strips to-used the glue stick instead of pins. Got ready to FMQ & thought, "really don't want the spray" Glue stick was right there. I ran it in spots all over the back of fabric, laid it down on the flannel, etc. Did a practice piece & whipped it out in no time.

    Has anyone used Gunold's KK100 adhesive spray? At LQS 18 oz can is $27. Owner claims it works better than 505.

    I have tried the spray basting on smaller projects and didn't have too much trouble. Tried it on a quilt that I am quilting in sections, so it was a long narrow piece. It ended up with tons of ugly wrinkles. I had smoothed and smoothed like I did on the smaller projects, but still got the wrinkles. Why is it doing that? Ended up pin basting it.
