    I was reading the thread about spray basting...am I the only one that doesn't like to spray baste?? I don't like the smell...or the stickiness...or the fact that you have to have good ventilation to use...so can't use during winter in the north...and the warnings on the can worry me. I don't love pin basting...but that is what I do...only ever spray basted 1 quilt and gave away the can...I think it was the 505.
    I can't imagine basting on a wall...well, in my house there isn't a wall big enough anywhere....older house with broken up rooms, lack of bigger walls. I use tables at friend's houses...who also do not spray baste...one friend is about deathly allergic to the spray...really bad reaction.

    Anyone else?

    I'm leary about spraying anything in my house. It's impossible to not inhale & it can't be good for you.

    I don't spray baste. I do a better job thread basting.

    I did one and can't bring myself to make that mess again. I just don't have a good place to do it.

    I'm afraid to try it. Have bad asthma!

    I love it and spray outdoors. Have only used it on small projects. Don't know if I could do a large quilt.

    i used to spray baste for my machine embroidery and didn't like it even on those small projects. i'd hate to think of doing a large quilt with it.

    Same here. Bad enough on a small piece.
