    :D I posted a few weeks ago about basting spray. I had a can, never used it before. I always pin basted. Well, I have a king sized monster quilt I have been working on that was ready for basting. DH and I went out in the driveway and spray basted out there lol. In no time that sucker was smoothed out and ready to go! I did pin some, because I wasn't sure I could trust the spray. There really was no need for the pins though. I am a convert!!!

    It is wonderful! It holds for awhile too. I've had times that the quilt sat for a couple of weeks and was still holding. It might loosen at the edges from handling, but I just spray a little more if I feel it's necessary.

    Yaaaaay! Good for you! Glad it worked out well for you. I am the other way round, I had never pin basted, I am far to impatient to get things done! Ditto the comments from katier825 too!

    It bugs me the price of that stuff, when you can walk down to the hardware section and buy a can of spray glue for half the price ( But I know I can't use it!!). The spray glue adds a lot to the cost of your finished project so for anyone who sells their items, that is a huge factor.

    BUT I will NEVER make another quilt without it!!

    I too spray basted one yesterday. I also did some pinning (didn't trust it either). It was so much faster. I have to do it on the floor and have an not so good back. So, thanks so much for the info and encouragement.
    Question, everyone said it worked best on cotton batting. The can also says that. But, I have several pkgs of poly batting sitting in a closet. Has anyone tried it. I don't want to waste the spray or even more so my time. I will never buy poly again. Another tip I learned since joining.

    I used it a couple of times on the poly batting and it worked fine. I do prefer the cotton batting. It quilts up so nicely.

    You were reading my mind to post this!!:)I did try a small sample w/the spray that was a friends and it just didn't work out...could be the way she sprayed, etc. I too had a can and it just sat here forever!:)Till a couple of days ago and I sprayed a good sized quilt w/it...I too pin basted the outside edge and a few spots in the middle. Didn't take half the time it normally takes me to baste...I finished quilting it and I am so sold on this basting spray! Well, adhesive spray!:)I'm stocking up!! Love it-love it! SKeat

    I am bad, I use the stuff from the hardware store, I use it sparingly. and I spray the batting not the fabric. I have never had a problem with it. I can't see spending that on a can, but I don't need to do that any more anyway since I got my bigger machine.

    I use it, too! But DH has forbidden me from spraying in the house......I did it on the dining room table. Yes, I covered the table. But the overspray covered the chairs!! LOL LOL :mrgreen: :mrgreen: I told him to just "let it go!"....that it would disappear in time. (I wasn't sure!) LOL :mrgreen: I didn't figure in the CAT hair getting caught in it......so a day later, I saw the cat hair and started washing it off. LOL :mrgreen: He caught me! :mrgreen: :mrgreen: Good thing he has a good sense of humor :mrgreen: :mrgreen:
