    What brand of spray basting do you recommend?

    I've never tried it, but I want to on my next quilt. What do you recommend and where do you get it?

    I only use 505. I have found it least expensive online rather than in the LQS unless I have some kind of discount. Watch for sales on Joann.com sometimes you can get it for 50% off which is an awesome deal.

    There are other sprays out there. However, I find 505 has less odor and when allowed to dry for a little bit does not gum up the needle.

    I love 505 too, I tried one by Birch and I didn't like it at all
    The biggest risk is the one not taken

    My local JoAnns didn't carry the 505, so I bought a can of the June Tailor using a 50% coupon. Used it for the first time recently and I will NEVER go back to basting a quilt. When I think of all the hours I spent crawling around on my knees on my hardwood floor and then still getting puckers on the back when I did the quilting . . .
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    I always have used Sullivan's which can be found at Hancock's and some quilt shops. I like it.

    I too am a lover of 505, a little goes a long way and it holds beautifully!

    505. Jo-Ann's online when it's on sale or with a 50% off coupon.

    I have used Dritz for years, available at both Joann and Walmart, less expensive and I think as good if not better.
    Yes that is a real picture of my hometown Temecula, California. We feature premiere Wineries, World Class Golf Courses, Pechanga Indian Casino and Hot Air Balloons

    I agree! I bought my 1st can from Connecting threads to try and loved it!!!! I then bought a case of the larger cans from I think it was sew for less on line. Total case price ($150) seems like a lot but that averages out to about $13.5 for big cans. Spray basting is nice sine it makes your quilt lighter since there is not the weight of pins.

    I've tried several brands, but now use only 505. I buy mine online here:

    Basting spray can change chemically over time, so I try to buy only enough at a time to last me for a year.

    I love 505. It goes far and works great. Wouldn't use any other, now that I have used it.
    so many quilts to make, so little time.
