    While hand basting last night, I noticed the areas that still had the spray on them; the needle wouldn't glide through easily.

    I have used the 505 spray, but that was back before using vintage machines, and I do recall having sections of the quilting with this similar problem. Back then, I considered it to be my error. Now, I'm thinking it wasn't. I googled loops and skip stitching from spray basting and read that it has happened to others.

    I have been wanting to do one quilt again that was hand quilted, been over 23 years since I hand quilted. This may be my quilt that now gets hand quilted since there are too many sections left with the spray. And I don't feel like machine quilting and then ripping out the sections that have the loops, if they do occur again.

    This could be fun hand quilting it and adding some hand embroidery to the project. So, I'm starting my next year's Christmas project today...and maybe I'll get it done in time.

    Very nice, Bennett!!! That Barkeepers Friend works great....I decided to try it when I was cleaning my Davis, as my hubby and I had used it on the chrome and other metal on our '62 T-Bird and it worked great. I like how it cleans without scratching anything.

    Monica, I have really never liked the idea of spray basting...so I have never done it. I got one small quilt from another quilter to be quilted, and she had spray basted it. I had to pull it apart and rinse it out. Not all the spray stuff came out, and I ended up putting fresh batting in it. It just reinforced my decision not to use it. I of course don't need it for quilting on my short arm frame, but for free motion I won't use it.

    I use it on occasion for my machine embroidery and I don't like it at all. I don't hink I would ever use it to Quilt. I think it messes up your machine.

    I thought it would wash out since they state it does, but it doesn't. There are sections still tacky...what a mess.
    I hate to throw away the batting since I'm into recycling; so, I'll work with it. Hopefully this smell goes away soon.
    My husband thinks that in a couple of days the glue will dry and the smell will dissipate.

    I doubt this stuff is healthy...and it should never be used on a baby quilt...I'm still coughing from this junk.
    It's hand basting or pin basting from here on.

    I like the 505 spray, but not any of the other brands. I have never had a problem with 505 spray but have heard lots of problems with other brand sprays, especially the June Tailor brand.

    I hope everyone at least tries the 505 spray for a small project. There is a difference and this is a great spray baste.

    Use a fluffy batting and just tie the quilt

    Miriam, Too Cute!

    I'm researching hand quilting, crazy quilts, and embroidery work on quilts. I'm noticing numerous folks are doing combinations of machine and hand quilting, and most of the projects are nicely done.

    Really? I like the idea of combining hand and machine quilting but didn't think anyone did it. I always thought it needed to be one or the other. Nice!

    Yes, Seems the modern quilters and some younger quilters are doing this technique. Anything goes! I'm studying and telling myself to think outside the box. This quilt will have to be all hand quilted, but the next one I make will have to be done with a combination.
