    Basting spray

    I have started using the June Tailor quilt basting spray. I find this much easiers and quicker than pin basting. However the over spray at the edges tends to leave a stickyness on the floor. Does anone else have this issue and if so how do you go about cleaning it up? Thanks

    I cover the floor with newspaper to catch the extra spray. Just wad them up and throw them away. I too love using the spray since I am handicapped and unable to quilt any other way. Enjoy

    I always put and old towel or blanket underneath and then wash it. If it doesn't come out it's not a problem.

    I put a sheet down. Spray, and then wash the sheet.

    When you spray near the edges, aim from the edge towards the center of the quilt. Be careful not to use too much or it will gum up the needle. I spray in a grid fashion about 6-8" apart. It holds very well. I used to use the June Tailor brand until I discovered the 505 brand. It's so much better! No gumming up the needle and much less stickiness when using. If you get a chance to try it, you will probably like it better.

    I agree newspaper around solves the problem

    I use news paper and put the quilt on tables on the patio.

    How do you keep the sheet/newspaper from moving around? I have been using blue painters tape to hold the fabric to the floor so it doesn't move or bunch up leaving puckers or ripples on the back of quilt.

    I just mop the floor. June Tailor spray seems to just mop up with no problem for me. If I didn't have to baste a quilt, who knows when I'd mop!

    I use 505 spray basting. It has almost no odor and sticks well but not have to much sticky overspray.

    When I spray basted, I put down an old king sized sheet on the bed and the quilt to be sandwiched on top. I could throw the sheet in the washer, then use again! But, I don't spray baste anymore since discovering school glue! So much easier and cheaper.

    I just wash the floor afterward and it comes right off the floor.

    June Tailor spray basting always had a awful smell . I switched to 505 or Dritz no smell. Has the June Tailor gotten better .. smell wise?

    I use 505 and put newspapers under the table. If I were to do it on the floor, I'd tape down newspapers and then tape the quilt onto them.

    I love June Taylor's spray. I put a clear shower curtain under my quilts when I spray them and then if I over spray I just wet a cloth with some Dawn dish detergent and wipe it down.

    So far so good!
