    What has been your experience using basting spray verses safety pins to hold your quilt together before FMQ? And is one spray better than another?

    I don't FMQ but I love spray basting. I use June Taylor basting spray from Walmart, it's only about $7.00 a can.

    Can you use this with the polly batting? Some sprays only seam to work with cotton batting.

    I use poly/cotton and poly and I've not had any problems. Just remember to spray lightly or it becomes too sticky.

    I have the best luck with the 505 spray. I get June Taylors from Michael's when they have the 50% coupons. I tried the Sullivan's brand and it had a horrible, chemical odor that I thought would never wash out.

    I first heard about it here, tried it, and LOVE it. No more crawling around on my knees and pins. I have both taped my top to a wall and sprayed on the batting and backing, and laid it out - both work equally well.

    I just started using it and what a difference! I love it. You do need to do it lightly or you will have a hard time laying it out. I also have to watch where I spray. I've gotten it on items not wanting to be sprayed. I now cover area around with small drop cloths. I also use coupons to help cut the price.

    I wish all the Walmarts carried it. I can never find it at any of the ones around here.

    Love using spray vs pinning! My backs never have little pleats anymore! I never have a problem with overspray. I spray the batting lightly in a grid pattern about 6" apart, a section at a time, then smooth it over the fabric.

    Do a search on spray basting. There have been other posts and many interesting answers.

    I love it. I buy it at Joanne's whenever the notion wall is 1/2 off. That way I keep a stash. I think it is about $6.00 when it is on sale.

    I love it. I was having a problem with over spray. Last time I put a few drop cloths on the garage floor, and sprayed there. Carefully carried it back in the house, and it worked great. I also tried spraying outside, which is fine, as long as there is no breeze!

    That sounds interesting. Which aisle is it in? I've never seen it.

    I bought a can of 505, it cost $25 on sale and I'm afraid to use it because if I like it then I'll want to buy it again and if I don't like it I'll be irratated with myself for wasteing money. :?

    I love 505! My LQS carries it, and it's the only one that doesn't get my head spinning when I spray it. It's about $25 for the big can, but well worth it!
