    I used 505 basting spray for the first time today. The quilt sandwiched together pretty good, (couple bad wrinkles in the backing), and seems to be tightly stuck together; however, I am having a terrible time moving the fabric around for FMQ. I started FMQ pretty quickly after spraying and now wonder if I needed to let it dry longer? I'm not good at FMQ, but I've never had trouble sliding the fabric around.

    Me too...looking forward to the reply. I'm almost ready to 505 for my first time. I hadn't even thought of this. Good question!

    There should not be any spray on the "outside" of your quilt sandwich. I use 505 all the time and though, usually, I am not able to immediately start quilting, I have never had a problem when I have. Several times I have sprayed and then taken the quilt to my sewing machine.

    Hello, I did a chenille cuddle strip quilt with 505 and had no problems, I was able to peel back my material and reposition it if it tucked anywhere. Maybe try a topstich needle size 14 or 16? or loosen the pressure on your foot if you can? I am no expert, just a few suggestions.

    The can does not indicate that any drying time is required. Do not understand why you are having difficulties. Did you follow the directions and spray onto the batting???

    Yes I sprayed onto the batting. The backing is 100% cotton toile. Maybe it's just that fabric that doesn't want to slide around. The only other FMQ I have done was with batiks and my FMQ was lousy, but at least the fabric slid around quite well.

    Here is a link of a FMQ video where the gal recommends the 505 spray and answers a lot of questions about it (there are 4 videos in all and I did view all of them.) You might want to take a look. She did mention spraying the quilting table (hers is acrylic) with a spray to help the quilt slide around easier. Hope this helps and answers some questions for you! Good luck! :)

    i used the dritz brand spray on my most recent quilt, and it did not need any time to dry, i started quilting right away.....if your quilt is hard to move, maybe you should try silicone spray on your machine, or a silicone pad under the quilt.........gina

    I recently saw someone recommending starching the quilt back to make it slide easier. At this point that might help.
