    I learned to spray baste here on the Quilting Board ... and I love it! Have finished a king size wedding quilt, a couple of smaller Quilts for Kids and just finished a Christmas Wall Hanging ... all spray basted and FMQed!

    I use 505 spray baste for everything. The only caution is to use it lightly -- spraying too heavily makes for hard quilting. Also, I'm very cautious about overspray, so I don't go too close to the edges, which means I often find it a good idea to pin along the edges. But, spray basting is so much faster than any other method!

    Wondering the same thing if you are referring to the long board method she uses. She shows the method using hand basting but I would like to use a spray instead. Hopefully someone has tried it and has an answer!

    I found her hand basting to be wonderful! I have never been able to get my quilts to lay flat until this method. I spray baste for wallhangings and similar sized projects.

    The first time I used sharon's method, I had a friend helpmto make sure I was doing it right. I suppose that you can also pin instead of hand basting but still use the support to get the fabrics controlled.

    I did my first sandwich last night with the boards and hand basting. It does make it smooth. Haven't tried it with the spray yet. I am thinking about using pinmoors and pins next one. It took me forever....2 hours...to baste it. Been a while since I basted, and I was trying so hard to do it right.
    Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways - Diet Dr. Pepper in one hand - chocolate in the other - body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO-HOO, what a ride!!"

    I have always hand basted using her method. It doesn't take all that long and is stable for as long as you need it to be. No worries about a spray losing it's sticky over time or over spray that you have to clean up.

    Ok the one time I tried to spray baste was on a mug rug and it left residue. What did I do wrong and what is the best spray to buy?

    Have tried both pins and spray. Sure is a lot easier not to have to remove the "spray as you go"... less blood too!

    Hi Diane

    I always use Sharon`s method and use 505 to spray baste. I only made a small adjustment as this works out better for me and big quilts.
    First I roll the back on one board and the batting on the other and spray baste it together with her method. After that I control and roll the back with the batting back on a board and the top on the other one and finish it her way.
    At first I used the same method as with her handbasting, but folding the batting back and forth was very uncomfortable and not as accurate as doing it in two steps.
    Hope this helps
    Granny
