    My sister was making something other then a quilt. She called me and asked me what to do with fleece that keeps
    stretching while sewing , She was using this for a backing for some Chaps she was making for her son.

    Any way I told her to go and buy spray Glue. She went to wall mart and saw the price of spary glue... (now this is my sister knowing alot about cars.) She called me back, and said to went to the automotive store and bought what they call glue spray for the inside of your care overhead liner. (This is for the inside of your car when the top of your ceiling comes down and hits you in the head)
    It is the same as glue spray for 1/4 of the price. I think she
    said she paid $3.00- $4.00 for a large can.
    I told her I would pass this on. same product for 1/4 of the cost.

    I will keep this in mind, if I ever need spray glue. What would you use it for exactly?

    Yikes!!! Most likely *not* the same product used for quilts! Basting spray used in quilts is water-soluble; I doubt that car glue is. It might work well for your sister's application, but I would not want permanent glue in any of the quilts I make -- especially with the outgassing that can occur.

    Please keep us posted about the gumming up of her needles (or not)& if the can says water soluable so we'd know if it's easy to clean up. This could be a great savings for us if all is good with that spray!!!!

    I too would wonder about it being the "same".

    Water soluble?
    Long term effects to the fabric? batting?

    Sure would be nice to find a lower cost alternative.
    .... and if you think yours is expensive, check the price here in Canada!

    My question to. Will it wash out? I know most liner in cars are held up with a very strong glue and I cannot believe that it is meant to wash out. It might be okay to buy a can and experiment with a sandwich of scraps before using it on a quilt. I think I would.

    There is a difference in spray glue and basting spray used for quilting.
    I have used spray glue made by Elmers to hold flannel to the foam core that is on my design wall but it is not the same as the spray "glue" that I use for my quilts. It is made by Sullivans but I also use the ones made by Sulky as well.
    Hope your sister has good luck with her project.

    I never thought of that... you may be right. This will be a good thing to check out. I will have my sister get her can and spay and check out the ingreidents. and check other things like water-soluble.

    Also, spray glue for quilts is re-positionable. I think this would stick and be there for good.

    I would want it to wash out also.

    I just called my sister... This has nothing on the can about water soluble.. she is going to spray some fabric
    let it dry, then hand was it to see if the glue washes away

    Her needles did not gum up.

    I just bought Dritz Basting spray Temporary Adhesive for Sewing, Quilting, Embroidery & Appplique. Any suggestions? I have not put the 3 layers together ever and a 'You-tube' quilter suggested a temp spray. I about fainted when I priced the 505 mentioned on the video. Any comments/suggestions,please. I have not used it and if not acceptable, I can return it,Thank you goonberrie

    I've never seen/heard of Dritz.

    I prefer the 505 over June Tailor.

    I have used the Dritz and it worked fine. It has more odor than the 505 and I am not sure how long it holds for. 505 will hold the quilt sandwich together for a long time.

    I have used kk5000 quilting spray for years and no problems with the gumming up the machine or anything. I love it, it helps those slippery places that are hard to hold. The secret is not to overdo, as in anything, just light spray. I always use it on the backing/batting of my quilting to hold it in place while I'm basing the top in place, works great and washes out, does not affect the batting.

    Hope this helps.
