    I've never spray basted, but would love to...just worried about it somehow messing up my machine. I know with the BSR, I've heard it's not a good idea.

    I only spray baste. Just be careful where you do the spraying. Laid the first on on the living room carpet and never could get that stuff out. Made big dark lines when walked on. Could not figure out what it was for awhile.Otherwise I love the spray.

    I only spray baste on small projects. Once I used too much, won't do that again.

    I use Sharon's basting method with the boards and spray baste as I go instead of hand basting. Easy! I do use only 505 spray baste having tried a variety of other products and find this one is the best for me. A light spray is all that is needed and I do pin along the border edges to avoid over spray. I used to do the hand basting only and the spray is so much faster and lasts until I am finished quilting.

    Spray basting is a great way to to go - I'm working on a large queen quilt now on my domestic machine. Everything stays put so well, even though I did what I could to start from the middle and work to the edge, it was so bulky I sort of switched to working from the edges in, NO PROBLEM! - no puckers everything stayed put!

    Somehow I scratched my hand while quilting and got blood on the quilt. I used my own blood and rubbed over it and took cold damp cloth to remove it and the spot came out leaving no stain. An instructor told us about it in class and I was skeptical until I had to try it. It worked. Patsy Thompson in her tutorials sprays her quilts using a wall board. I am trying in on my QAUG I'm working on now. I'm assessing whether I like it or not.

    I use 505 spray, but you have to spray lightly.

    If you get a drop of blood on the quilt from a pin, just put a touch of saliva on it and it wil disapear.

    I always spray baste and use several pins for large items. The pins help keep things from shifting as I'm wrestling the quilt for FMQ.

    spray baste

    I spray baste and sometimes even use Elmer's spray glue. Never had a problem getting with sticky. I'm not one to baste and I don't get along with pins.
    What is the sandwich method your all talking about.

    I have done it both ways and really prefer spray basting. It is quicker, holds better and the sandwich is lighter. I prefer 505 Spray basting since it has less odor than others. I bought it by the case on line and paid about $150 with free shipping for 12 larger cans. Connecting thread has it in the smaller cans if you want to try it first. Have not been able to find this product locally.

    I have never used the sticky batting but use spray basting all the times for smaller items like wall hangings and table runners. Have not used it for a large quilt yet.

    I have used 'spray basting' and find it very good. Give it a try on a small quilt first.

    I always spray baste,have never had a problem with it not washing out -always follow directions on the can and put an old sheet or shower curtain under the quilt you are spraying. With a large quilt ,I add a few safety pins to keep it all lined up.

    Spray basing is the best for me. Even the smaller quilts work well.

    I use this wall method to spray my quilts, too. First, you tape newspaper to the walls around where you will be spraying (I use my design wall)- AND on the floor - to catch the overspray. Then you pin the backing to the wall wrong side out. Spray the entire backing. Pat and smooth the batting on. Spray the entire batting. Pat and smooth on the quilt top. Remove the quilt.

    Now you can look at the back and check for puckers. If there are puckers, take the quilt to your cutting table and lift the bad areas and smooth them out. You can redo sprayed areas over and over until you get the entire sandwich exactly the way you want it. Chances are, if you carefull smoothed it out on the wall, you will have very little need to re-smooth after you take it off the wall.
