I have been using Quilter's Select Free Fuse Basting Powder for awhile now. I bought the refill package and put it in a large kitchen shaker I had. I like it as there is no mess or over spray and no smell. It's perfect for applique and small quilts. I can be very precise where I want the powder. I will probably use it to baste my next large quilt as it only takes a little and it's repositional. I think it's a great product.

I haven't tried it but just now read about it and I read the reviews also. It is $20 and does a double quilt or so it says. Refills are $10. A king size is said to cost $30. The video looks like it does a very nice job but I don't see myself spending that much.

It's a product that I will never buy simply because it is a powder. Powder floats in the air and I don't want to breathe it in. I use basting spray grudgingly, but not very often, because I don't like the idea of the glue droplets going into my lungs.

It does not float in air. I have been using it instead of sprays since it came available. It's much better then the older versions of adhesive powder. I don't need but a little to baste a large quilt and the value is much better then the quality basting spray and no mess or fumes.

I use a much smaller amount then called for and it works fine. I buy the refill packs, less then a can of basting spray and lasts longer.

I use Elmers Washable school glue straight out of the bottle. I can do a queen size both sides with one small bottle. Cost $1. No fumes. No overspray. Does not gum up needle when it dries. It washes out.

I use Elmer's too but like this dry fuse better. I was searching for a good sale and found a quilt shop online going out of business and bought a lot of refill packs 1/2 off. I'm good for a long time.
