    Sharon Schamber method for sandwiching?

    I'm sandwiching my first (2) quilts and watching Sharon's method would like to know if anyone was used spray basting instead of hand basting. Thanks in advance for any info. Diane

    I used spray basting once, I guess like all things you have to learn about it. I'm still trying to get the sticky out of the quilt so it lays right. Others swear by it, so I won't knock it.

    I haven't used either method you mentioned, but I've seen others here rave about both!

    I have not spray basted.
    Desiderata (Max Ehrmann) - Walk placidly amid the noise and haste and remember what peace there may be in silence. As far as possible without surrender be on good terms with all persons. Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even the dull and the ignorant; they too have their story. Avoid loud and aggressive persons, they are vexations to the spirit.

    I always spray baste - mostly because I bleed very easily and hate the spots on the quilt from one small scrape on a pin. It lso keeps the motion steady as I am not starting and stopping to remove pins.

    When you sleep under a quilt, you sleep under a blanket of love.
