    I also read a tut on this and they recommended ironing the layered quilt. I have done this and think it helps smooth out any wrinkles you might have gotten in the layering.

    Thanks for the tute! I had issues when laying everything on the floor and preventing wrinkles and creases. I didn't know about basting spray. I assume that washes out?

    With lifting the layers up in small sections then spraying, does that cut down on overspray? The fear of overspray on everything stops me from using spray. I got that mess all over a microwave from overspray and couldn't get it off. Do you have glue on the whole layer or just around the edges?

    I hae used several different spray bast types and I find 505 is the best. You only need to spray lightly, I never had any issues with it smelling as I have with others. My floor is not sticky once done as that has been a problem when I used the June Taylor. I don't put done newspapers and its fine. You only need a small amount...do not use the whole can on a quilt. I just did three quilt with mine one can.

    Thanks for the info. I have no idea which brand I used. Maybe the product was my problem.

    I love your blog--What did you use for your ottoman and queensize tumbler blocks? Those are not the same shape as the accucut go die.
