    I'm very new to machine quilting. Terrified and terrible, actually! LOL! I read a thread on basting spray and wanted to try it, so I made a simple runner. I didn't quilt the runner much, but the spray really helped me keep everything together with no puckers! Woo hoo! :D I think I may need 10-15 years more practice, but I'm willing!

    Chele, I love your table runner and the great fabric selection. I made this runner several years ago. Hope I can find it so that I can make it again. You have inspired me and I am going to spray baste on my next project. Thanks for the great tip.
