    I used 505 basting spray for the first time today. The quilt sandwiched together pretty good, (couple bad wrinkles in the backing), and seems to be tightly stuck together; however, I am having a terrible time moving the fabric around for FMQ. I started FMQ pretty quickly after spraying and now wonder if I needed to let it dry longer? I'm not good at FMQ, but I've never had trouble sliding the fabric around.

    Me too...looking forward to the reply. I'm almost ready to 505 for my first time. I hadn't even thought of this. Good question!

    There should not be any spray on the "outside" of your quilt sandwich. I use 505 all the time and though, usually, I am not able to immediately start quilting, I have never had a problem when I have. Several times I have sprayed and then taken the quilt to my sewing machine.

    Hello, I did a chenille cuddle strip quilt with 505 and had no problems, I was able to peel back my material and reposition it if it tucked anywhere. Maybe try a topstich needle size 14 or 16? or loosen the pressure on your foot if you can? I am no expert, just a few suggestions.

    The can does not indicate that any drying time is required. Do not understand why you are having difficulties. Did you follow the directions and spray onto the batting???

    Yes I sprayed onto the batting. The backing is 100% cotton toile. Maybe it's just that fabric that doesn't want to slide around. The only other FMQ I have done was with batiks and my FMQ was lousy, but at least the fabric slid around quite well.

    Here is a link of a FMQ video where the gal recommends the 505 spray and answers a lot of questions about it (there are 4 videos in all and I did view all of them.) You might want to take a look. She did mention spraying the quilting table (hers is acrylic) with a spray to help the quilt slide around easier. Hope this helps and answers some questions for you! Good luck! :)

    i used the dritz brand spray on my most recent quilt, and it did not need any time to dry, i started quilting right away.....if your quilt is hard to move, maybe you should try silicone spray on your machine, or a silicone pad under the quilt.........gina

    I recently saw someone recommending starching the quilt back to make it slide easier. At this point that might help.

    Starching it is a good idea. I'll try it.

    I think it may be the fabric. I've never had any problems with 505 spray.

    Is this the same 505 spray that is used for machine embroidery? Has anyone tried Gunold's KK100 spray for embroidery or for quilt basting? I saw the Gunold's spray at a LQS that also features embroidery machines and I would like to know if anyone has tried it.

    I only use the 505 for my embroidery because it does adhere so well. For basting my quilts I use quilt basting spray -think I have June Taylor , so I can smooth out the wrinkles more easily

    I use 505 all the time & have not experienced this problem.
    Did you spray heavily? I spray lightly, with a quick side to side motion, onn the batting.
    I roll my quilt up, starting at the top align it, & begin to slowly unroll, smoothing, as I go. I find there are less puckers this way.
    I do the back first, then turn the backing down, spray the batting again & do the front.
    I don' t spray all the way to the edge, usually stop 4-5 " from it. Maybe when you sprayed, some got on the back of the quilt which is hanging it up?

    Not an expert, but I always let it dry for about 30 seconds before I "attach" it to whatever. It seems to stick better.

    I use a "Supreme Slider" to help the fabric move around freely. Helps a lot. CHeck out Leah Day's website (daystyledesigns.com)

    Thanks for the link! Putting the quilt sandwich together by hanging it on the wall is really a super idea. Most wrinkles must just hang out! She has some wonderful tips.

    Maybe you sprayed a little too heavy. I've only sprayed one time and did very well. I actually felt a little drag but not bad and I was thinking that maybe I sprayed too heavy. Later, I saw a teaching video and the lady was sandwiching her top and it looked like she was spraying very lightly.

    It's the only kind I use and no, no waiting. It will stay stuck or over a week too!
