I use it all the time, the brand I use is 505. I just picked up 3 cans today, last time I ran out, had to wait two weeks for the shop to get more in. Now I'm stocking up! lol

I have just bought some, 505, but there are no instructions on the tin, please could someone explain what you spray, the batting , back or front.
Many thanks
Katherine
Also do you have time to smooth the material out should need be before it sticks to firmly.

I tape my backing down, making sure it is taut, no ripples etc.t, then I lay my batting on, roll half the batting back, spray it then lay it back down on the backing. Pat it down and then do the same to the other half.

Lay your top on, making sure it's flat, then fold half back, spray the batting and lay the top back , again patting it down...do the same for the other half of the top. Large tops I get hubby to help me so that when we lay it on the sprayed batting we are keeping it taut so so no wrinkles form. :)

You don't need to spray a whole lot, just lightly spray over the area....lay out newspaper around to protect the area around your quilt from over spray.

Thank you Shadow, does it dry quickly, do you have to leave it flat for a while or is it ok to lift it up as soon as its all put together.

It's ready to go as soon as you have it sandwiched, do drying time needed. :)

An alternative way... Not that there is anything wrong with Shadow Dancer's way....

No tape method: I make two tubes one tube for the top and one tube for the bottom (roll them to look like snakes). Note the direction if your top isn't square rolling both the top and the bottom the same direction.

Now spread out your batting. Spray the batting and unroll the "BACK" tube pressing it to the batting as you go. When finished. Flip it over. So the batting is once again on the top. Spray the batting, and unroll the "Top" the same way as you did with the back. :)

I started the bowling quilt sandwich but I wish I had waited til I got all your suggestions on how to do it. It would have been much easier. I still like it better than pinning. Took me a little longer than if I had waited and read your suggestions, but I love the way everything stays in place while I sew. I'll never go back to pinning again.

:D Sorry the advice part came to late. It's so hard to wait even a moment longer when you know you want to do it right now. Live and learn, that's the best any of us can do :) and I'm certain you learned. :D
