    I love it and I lay the quilt on a BIG old sheet to avoid overspray.

    I'll be the one 'no"...too messy, need to go outside to do so I'd rather just pin or use fusible batting...

    I'm glad I clicked on the second page of this thread because you answered my question. Also I like your idea of doing on a big tarp. That's what I'm going to do on my next big quilt.

    Nope. no pins required. I usually pin the edges anyway so they won't get stretched with all the handling. I also prefer to use the spray outside because it will make a mess in the house and the fumes are obnoxious.

    I only like 505 basting spray. June taylor spray smells too much for me.

    I bought a can of basting spray but for my last quilt I was afraid to use it. I am new to quilting, and sandwiching it is so difficult for me. I would love to see a tute for doing this step. This last top was hard to center for some reason. I was wondering if there is a method of doing it. Maybe it was the static in the air, because once I placed it, it wouldn't shift easy, and I kept getting my borders short on one side or the other....know what I mean. Maybe I was concerned about the backing looking square as it was always looking tilted. I hope I'm making sense.

    I both always spray and pin. Then thru out quilting when on my domestic after I have quilted so far re-adjust if needed and pin some more.

    I just paid $12.99 at JoAnn's. Haven't used this brand before, but I do use basting spray a lot and love it.

    Spray baste is the only way I baste. I use any brand, whatever I find on sale. I really can't tell the difference.

    I really like it also. Need to be very careful of the overspray. I use lots of newspapers.

    I love it! The only problem is figuring out where to do it especially when the quilt is large.

    it appears that space to do it is always the problem.

    OK, I'll be contrary and say I absolutely hate it. It gets all over everything - your hair, the room, etc. Do it outdoors when there is no breeze.

    I used it for the first time after the last post when someone inquired and I am definitely going to use it for my future projects.

    I prefer the 505 over the others. It isn't so strong that it feels stiff and it washes out the first wash. The other one I also like for table runners and such is sulky KK2000. Haven't had a problem with either one. I used Sullivans a couple of times but it was almost too sticky. This is just my opinion.

    Only way to go, I have used Dritz, June Taylor, and now 505. I bought a case of it in a red canmso I won't run out!

    I do believe if I shook with all my might with my left and right arms I might give myself a black eye from all that loose skin flapping about! LOL - The one thing Weight Watchers doesn't tell you is how loose everything is (for us older folks) once you've lost a lot of weight (96 lbs!) - I feel like a dried prune!

    I love it if I can get outdoors or into the garage to spray. I don't like it on my floors and countertops in the sewing room

    Is it worth trying? What does everyone feel are the pros and cons of using this instead of pins.

    Thanks
    I use this (very, very lightly) to refresh my Cricut cutting mats. Not exactly a quilting answer I know. I love cross-over products!

    I love it. I use it all the time. I used to pin and baste but this is so much faster. I don't think I will ever go back.

    Go to the search icon and type in spraybasting video for the wall. It is a good idea. Eliminates a lot of mess.

    It is the only way I baste quilts, it was the way I was taught. Have NEVER pin basted.

    Actually I rarely use pins when making quilts.
