    Has anyone had any issues with the adhesive wrecking your sewing machine? My quilt teacher told me not to use spray adhesive because it gets stuck in the mechanisms of the machine. Some claim 505 won't do this. What does everyone think? I just bought a 17 oz can!

    Crazy like a fox! Sounds like a brilliant solution to me. Contains the overspray and quick clean-up.

    Not the season to try this but in the spring I am going to try attaching them to the back side of the house to spray baste. Like many others here we have cut our living space in half and I don't have anywhere there is a section of wall big enough to accommodate doing this. If you have an area under a porch and live in a warm climate you might be able to accomplish it in the winter and you don't have to worry about being well ventilated.

    Have you ever tired just ironing the back to the batting, then flipping the quilt over and ironing the top to the batting? No pins no basting spray. I use to do that before i had a long arm. I would start quilting from the center out and never had any problems.

    I am so glad I found a local LA that will layer and baste a large quilt for $20 and that includes quality cotton batting or I supply a specialty batting of my choice. She told me she made more profit from basting quilts then from quilting.
    Got fabric?

    To borrow from another poster - 'You ARE a freaking genius"!!! My shower/bath may be plastic but I hate it anyway - so will try this. DH does not replace anything that may have some life in it - so I have lived with this shower/bath for 14 years (LOL).
