Do you pin when using basting spray? Just curious to know what others are doing in that regard ...
Welcome to the Quilting Board!
depends on the project and the brand of spray- if it is a small project pinning is not usually necessary- for large quilts sometimes it is necessary to pin around the edges to keep everything stable. some basting sprays work better than others. read the instructions and follow them for best results and if the edges are pulling apart when you are manipulating the quilt pin or thread baste around the edges.

I typically only pin the edges to keep it from lifting as I move the quilt around.
Yes, I still pin but only about every foot or so on quilts.
Never argue with an idiot. They'll drag you down the their level and beat you with experience.
I never pin after spray basting, whether a small wall hanging or a bed size quilt. They spray always works even if I lay the project aside for a few weeks. I've been very pleased with the spray basting method.
I usually pin after spray basting- not a lot, but like GingerK every foot or so.
When I have used 505 spray, on large quilts I might pin every couple of feet around the edges -- just so they don't get flipped (although you can readjust even if they do get flipped). I once ruined an expensive Bernina walking foot when it got caught on a pin that I missed taking out while quilting, so I do *not* like to use pins when quilting on my domestic machine!
I don't usually pin when spraying, but I was reading something recently that someone DID pin when spraying. I pretty much hate the process of sandwiching, so whatever I can do to make it easier ... well, I'll do it. LOL
I spray all the time. I never pin anything any more.
