    What size quilt are you making and how long did the boards have to be?

    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

    Thanks! Just the info I wanted to hear!!

    Can Sharon's video for hand basting be used to spray baste? It seems that using the boards you have more control of the fabric. Has anyone tried this? Thanks for any and all suggestions!!

    I've used spray basting for small projects and a lap quilt, and had no problems with it.

    I've never spray basted, but would love to...just worried about it somehow messing up my machine. I know with the BSR, I've heard it's not a good idea.

    I only spray baste. Just be careful where you do the spraying. Laid the first on on the living room carpet and never could get that stuff out. Made big dark lines when walked on. Could not figure out what it was for awhile.Otherwise I love the spray.

    I only spray baste on small projects. Once I used too much, won't do that again.

    I use Sharon's basting method with the boards and spray baste as I go instead of hand basting. Easy! I do use only 505 spray baste having tried a variety of other products and find this one is the best for me. A light spray is all that is needed and I do pin along the border edges to avoid over spray. I used to do the hand basting only and the spray is so much faster and lasts until I am finished quilting.
