    It starts at about 3:30 into that video.
    Thanks for the link! I wondered about spray starch. Now, I know it is okay!
    Be the best that you can be at everything you do.

    That's exactly what I do with mine. Works like a charm!

    i always pre-wash my wide backs- then remove them from the dryer before they are over-dried---then they are wrinkle/crease free & ready to load- much easier than handling on the ironing board- i tried the spray it on the frame once---was not happy with that method- fabric stretches if it's wet- if you wait for it to dry then quilt it all takes forever---turn spray...wait, wait wait- quilt- turn, spray, wait wait wait...not my idea of a good time.
    hiding away in my stash where i'm warm, safe and happy

    I always iron. I do use one piece backing on the frame. But recently I have started using all the left over pieces from the front and that is ironed. This keeps the stash down.

    I load my backings and spritz with Best Press. Love the light scent!
