    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.
    Shadow--I just did this with a small wall hanging. I had it all laid out, but then added the paper--so had to untape the tape to get the paper under. It came out okay--but the back is just a little ripply--nothing that will crease (I hope.). How do you get the back to be taunt if it's taped to the paper that protects your area?

Do you think this will work for appliq too??I've pin basted where I want my objects and have pinned myself crazy!! Every time I stitch I poke myself!:))LOL Skeat
    As for the applique, I saw at Wal-Mart next to the 505 were 606 and that can said it was for more permanent applications such as applique. I didn't read everything but maybe your Wal-Mart might have some and you can read the can more thoroughly.

    I have been using Taylor. I have had no problems. It smells like rubber cement to me. :)

    I do it a different way. I lay out the batting. Hand smooth it out in all directions. Lay the backing wrong side down on top of the batting. Hand smooth it out in all directions. Fold one half of the backing back. Spray the batting. Bring the half I folded back back down smoothing it out as I go. Repeat for other half. Flip it over. Batting is down on top. Re-smooth. Lay the top wrong side down on top of the batting. Hand smooth it out in all directions. Fold one half of the backing back. Spray the batting. Bring the half I folded back back down smoothing it out as I go. Repeat for other half.

    I do this on top of our king size bed with a BIG flannel blanket under it. I can walk around three sizes and not hard on the back. :D

    I love the stuff, but I always get wrinkles. Any great suggestions for avoiding them as I am often doing this by myself--Hubby at work and toddlers locked out of the room.

    I use 505, btw.

    I just picked up my first can at Joann's yesterday with a 50% off coupon. I saw the big June Tailor can and it said basting spray...then there was a whole section of spray adhesives....tons of them. Some temporary. some permanent that were half the price of the June Tailor one. I should have taken a friend with me.

    I ended up getting a tiny, overpriced can off the notions wall that had a picture of a quilt on the front and it was spray adhesive as opposed to spray basting. I kind of wish they would have kept them all together or had one of those nifty charts they have all over the place.

    The sales girl said that the tiny can was what she used...and it would last longer than I thought even though it was a small can. I figure, if I don't like it, I got a small can. I'm going to have to do some homework on all the different kinds.

    On small wall hanging sized quilts, I just use basting spray, alone. On large lap sized quilts and bed sized quilts, I use spray and I pin, but further apart than if no spray was used. There is a lot of handling when you machine quilt, and I don't trust the spray to be used exclusively, on large projects.

    I ordered a can of 505 spray(8.5oz.) from JoAnn's online a few weeks again, used 50% coupon off. The total was less than $12.00. It arrived in a few days.

    I would use wide painter's tape to tape the backing down taut, then place the paper on top of the tape. You could even tape the paper to the painter's tape to keep it in place.

    Dumb question: Is the 505 you're all talking about called "505 Temporary Fabric Adhesive"?
    I want to make sure I pick up the right stuff tommorow.

    Yes, that is the right stuff. It is a little more expensive than the other sprays but I like that one the best.

    I tape my backing down, I don't lift the tape to put paper down, the paper moves and I can't keep my back taut. Lay the paper around the edge of your backing, it's just there to catch any overspray so it doesn't need to be anchored down. If you happen to get any spray on your floor/carpet, 505 spray is water soluable, just wipe it up with a wet cloth.

    I use painters tape as well, it holds and comes up easy when I have the quilt sandwiched. I have quilts that I have been working on over the period of months, they are still securely sandwiched as when I first did them. When I finish a quilt, I toss it in the wash to remove the spray. :)
