    I have the best results when I use the Sharon Schamber method. It the past I used safety pins but I'm alot happier with basting-and i really hate to baste.

    It depends on how I'm going to quilt them. If I am machine quilting on my sewing machine, then I spray baste with 505 spray but if I'm hand quilting on my Q-Snap floor frame, then I take the top, back and batting to my mom who is a long arm quilter and she bastes them for me on the long arm. I don't like to use pins with my Q-Snap frame.

    I just placed an order for the white color ones that are on sale. I have a dark quilt to layer.

    The gun makes my fingers so sore. You have to hold your fingers underneath the quilt(at least I do) for the tag to shoot through. Maybe the newer guns work better. It takes way to much time to snip the tags because you have to be very careful to not snip the fabric. I have a tag remover but it takes just as much time only no danger of snipping the fabric.

    Spray basting is what I do almost 100% of the time, then thread basting and last pinning.

    I tried spray basting but it didn't work out for me. I have a quilt at the LA to be basted. The last LA who basted a quilt for me made a mess out of it, I can only imagine if she quilted like she basted. I'm trying a new person so maybe she knows what she is doing.
