    I want to attempt spray basting a table runner, but I just read on this board that the spray basting doesn't work on a polyester batting? Should I forget the polyester batting and purchase a cotton batting? TIA

    I have used it on poly batting and it seems to work fine for me.

    I have used cotton and poly batting when spray basting and they both worked fine.

    Some people have no problems spray basting polyester batting; others do. I think the difference may be in the brand of spray. Haven't seen anyone mention 505 not working on polyester.

    You could do a test sandwich to see how it works for you before trying it on an entire quilt.
