    Yes color catchers a must. I prewash and dry my fabrics and still amazed at the color I caught when I washed--had reds in all the quilts so definitely necessary!

    This remembers me of the days when we made our own glue. Flour & water....(says my age?)

    I know I'm digging up an old thread here, but oh well. Of those of you that have tried this method, how long does it take to dry? I'm very interested in it as 505 is too expensive for me plus I worry about fumes, pinning and the regular Elmer's glue method are painful to my hands and pinning takes forever​!

    I'm going to try this on my smaller quilts, and one I'm just starting as a qayg. Thanks so much for the recipe! It's so helpful! The spray baste is expensive, and of course, you have to be careful not to inhale it, so you need a well ventilated area. I'd feel safer using something like this.

    I haven't tried it yet, but it seems to me that if you ran a hot iron (no steam) over the glued fabric over batting that it would make it dry very fast. Someone please correct me if I'm wrong!
