    I love to use spray basting but not when I hand quilt. It's harder to get the needle through.

    I love 505. I've tried another brand, and it gunked up my needle really bad. I'll stick (no pun intended) with 505. :)

    YES!!! I spray baste all of my quilts!!! My favorite is the 505 spray. It is the coolest stuff!!!
    I sandwich my quilts over at the church where DH works. We push together a couple tables (really nice when we have the adjustable ones and we raise them up) I do tape my backing down, get it nice and wrinkle free. We just did 4 of them on Saturday.

    I love spray basting! Not sure if I would get much quilting finished if I had to pin.

    I spray baste baby quilts that I tie or push & shove quilt. If you use the June Tailor spray from Joann's, you'll need a well ventilated room to use it in--outside would be better. It has a lingering odor that some people may have a bad reaction to (hubby has allergies) and I always prewash baby quilts before sending them to the baby.

    Is the can labled 505 Spray and Fix? Is this the same as the 505 Basting Spray that everyone talks about?

    I'm a handquilter and I must say I don't like spray basting. The material is harder to needle with it and I prefer thread basting - although it takes longer to finish!
