    I have a king size bed that I use, my knees do not crawl around on the floor. I cover the bed with an old flannel sheet to protect everything, arrange the batting and backing to my liking then fold back half the backing, spray the batting (or backing) then smooth the backing back down and repeat for the other half. Then I flip it all over, arrange the quilt top then repeat the process. Once you have done this a few times you should be able to "baste" a full size quilt in about 30 minutes.

    I would love to know just how you do this because I hate the puckers as well.

    I forgot to add that I really like the flannel sheet because it keeps everything from sliding around otherwise you might need to tape or clamp.

    Be sure to use a large sheet underneath to catch any overspray. You can toss the sheet in with the laundry when you are done; the spray will wash right out.

    Spraying from the edges towards the center helps minimize overspray.

    You do *not* want to be cleaning overspray from flooring and other surfaces!
