    I've not used the 505, but always spray baste my quilts. Whenever I put the sandwich together, I always leave at least 24 hours before I start quilting. This way, I don't get high on the fumes and I've never had a gunky needle. Perhaps if you have been too heavy handed with the spray, did some of it soak through? You only need to give it a very light spray to have it adhere.

    i use 505 all the time and have never had a problem , after spraying the quilt it usually sits for about 5 min, while i clean up my mess and gather everything i need to start quilting on it , do you think you might of gotten some spray on the backside of the quilt? making it stick to the table?

    Actually I've been told to spray the fabric and this is what I do. Make sure your backing is well stretched and secure, packing tape works well, before you add the batting.
