    Spray Adhesive

    I have a can staring at me and afraid to use it. Can someone give me some tips, advice, advantages, or comments about using this in my quilting. Will I make a mess of everything around me when I spray it?

    I have found the overspray to be minimal. I try to spray from the outside toward the middle as much as possible. Spray one half at a time and smooth it down.

    I have wood floors and the overspray just mops up off of it with no problem. It encourages me to mop! I have never had a problem with gumming up needles or anything. It works great for me.

    Do you have spray adhesive or spray basting? If its is spray basting what type /manufacture ? Some perform differently than others.
    There is a good amount of over spray.. so spread sheets or papers around the area. I usually go at least 18 inches past the edge of the item I am quilting with protection. Usually less is better and lightly spray the item. I know when did my first I used way too much as it just did not seem to be sticky .. but it was. Sometimes it does not get tacky right away. I still pin the outter perimeter , as sometimes the edges will lift in the handling and quilting process. I suggest a small sample 12 -18 inches square so you can get a feel for the nature of spray basting , you can judge how much you you really need and it will help get you past the "first time jitters".

    I put an old blanket on the table to catch the over spray. I have found, like LoriS said, that doing half, almost sectioning into fourths helps keep it easier and fairly even.

    so far i've done my quilts on my folding JoAnn's table. I center my backing then batting, then top. lift (or now I roll up) my top several times, then spray with Sulky or 505 and fold down or roll down the top to cover, then spray and on and on. then i flip it all over and do the backing.
    now i usually spray the batting although some "rules" somewhere says to spray the fabric only. i just know i've never had a problem doing it my way.

    First and foremost, check the label and make sure it's washable. Also, do a practice sandwich and see how it behaves in your machine. I've never had a problem, but others have complained of some products gumming up their needle.

    http://www.sulky.com/adhesives/index_adhesives.php I think I'd do a little more research on the "temporary" part, unless you're able to spray it & quilt it all in the one day.

    I use the Sulky KK 2000 brand to baste my quilts. There's not a lot of overspray, it doesn't take a lot, and it generally lasts 3-4 days.

    I'm interested in permanent spray adhesive for some quilting art projects.
