    I think this may have been the problem. I am researching as we speak. I had to start over with the quilt and now I have lots of material to test on.
    Thanks for the response

    I can't use spray basting either, also because of asthma (which for some reason is much worse this year than in past years). That's one reason I stick to pin basting, or hand basting. Asthma attacks (or incidents) can be deadly, and I'm not about to take that risk. I wish I could help you on this issue, but I really cannot. I hope you find a solution to your problem. I use a high quality 100% poly batting, so the spray basting is not an option.

    Perhaps I'm brain dead this afternoon, but eventually, both sides of the batting have to be basted. First your quilt top, then your batting, then the backing. How can you avoid spraying the scrim side, since the batting is in the center? As I said, I may be brain dead!

    Me too. I will look at Whalemart the next time I'm in to see if they carry it. Joann's is an hour away.
