    Yes, I shook it for the full 2 minutes and then as I was spraying I would notice that it was sloshing in the can and would shake during spraying. I noticed at the two minute mark there didn't seem to be any loose spray in the can. I mean that it was shaken up so well that you couldn't hear it when shaking it at the 2 min. mark.

    I don't think it should take 2 minutes of spraying for a crib quilt. Seems to me that is about how long I would be spraying for a queen size quilt.

    I tried a wall once, and then went back to using a large table. It seemed to take me a lot longer and be a lot more work to make adjustments when I tried it on the wall. Some people prefer it, though.

    no...not 2 min. of spraying the quilt...2 min. of shaking before spraying. That's what the can said to do.

    I think I figured out why the wall hanging is so stiff! I've only been quilting for a year so you'll have to excuse me....I am making a photo quilt for my mother-in-law for Mother's Day and I used letter (whole sheet) size pictures. These fabric sheets (which I bought at Joann's) are stiffer than regular fabric. They have a paper backing to make them easy to go through your printer. You peel if off about 10 min. after you pull it out of the printer. Anyway, the fabric is stiffer than reg. cotton fabric that you buy. So as you can see from the photo I've included just about the whole wall hanging is photo fabric with just a little regular cotton fabric. Thanks for all your input! I just love this board!
