    I've read so many of you spray baste. I've done it with really small quilts, but now I'm getting ready to FMQ (teeth chattering) a quilt that is 55 x 55 inches. If I spray baste, is that ALL I need to do? Or should I still pin it too? I doubt it matters, but the back is also pieced (big pieces). I'd be using 505. Is that the right product?

    505 is all you need. It is wonderful.

    How careful do you have to be? And do you baste the whole thing at once? Work from the middle out? (I know I'm supposed to quilt from the middle out.) It just seems impossible to me that it will all stay put. (Maybe I'm a wild quilter. Do you think so?)

    It will stay put unless you physically move it! Great stuff, no pins. Work in ventilated area. I put my cat outside since she is one nosy puss. :mrgreen: I sprayed half at a time. Let the half you are not working on hang over your table. That way you know where you are. Then quilt as usual, from the middle out.

    It works just fine, quilt from the middle out.

    I just spray basted a queen size and I just love it. I will never pin baste again. It is holding together great just waiting to be quilted.
