    using spray glue. Worked very good. I had a small quilt to put together and DW had one alittle larger. I must admit that I was nervous affaid I would mess it up. Thanks to all for all the information here it worked very well.

    Cool, after flopping around on the floor last night pin basting, I am seriously giving spray basting a thinking... be sure to post a photo of your quilt when it is done!

    Congratulations! I've only done a few quilts- but I learned on my most recent one that basting goes a million times better if you starch the backing and top. I couldn't believe how I didn't have any wrinkles and puckers!

    Tell me more about the spray basting. Are the directions on the container, or do I need specific instructions? My DH and I sandwiched my quilt for my great granddaughter yesterday using my old cardboard cutting/folding board and the dining room table. He was such a sweetheart to help. No, he had never seen it done, but he was a fast learner.
