I just ran out of spray baste. I need more. I'm eyeing the gluesticks and the blender. Add water. Put in old sprayer. Anybody try this or another recipe? What were your results?

I did try it yesterday just for grins. I used 3 glue stick tubes and about 1 1/2 cups of water. Threw this into the blender. Poured the mixture into a spray bottle. Yep, it was too wet and now that I think of it, since they were 'washable' glue sticks I probably washed the adhesive properties out of things.

I did have some left over 'Craft and Bond' spray that I figured I'd try. I sort of followed the directions: sprayed my fabric and then waited about 5 minutes before basting my quilt bottom and fleece batting together. Same thing with the quilt top and fleece batting. No problem with being able to reposition things on a baby sized quilt. I did straight stitch quilting with no issued with gumming up the needle. Worked in a pinch.

So, still curious about making my own spray basting, I did some searches on the internet. Here's a link to what I might try: Basting spray. (Be aware that there is a mold growth potential indicated if you don't finish your quilt and wash it within a reasonable time. Yuck.)

The most likely route I'm going to try is using washable glue for basting similar to this link on page 6 Glue basting. We usually have the stuff around, it's inexpensive, doesn't seem to gum up your needle, and appears effective.

Happy basting!

Lots of people on quiltingboard.com use Elmer's School Glue to baste quilts. They drizzle a thin stream of glue and smooth the pieces together.

Now that school supplies are in stores many are buying up a good supply of the glue.

I am going to buy some on my next payday.

You can make homemade glue with flour or cornstarch too, but it has the risk of attracting critters or growing mould as it is organic, you would need to finish it quickly and wash it.

Many people user Elmers school glue for basting, they either drizzle a thin line, make small dots or even use a painting brush. There are some topics about it on the Quilting Board. Sharon Schamber uses this glue for basting before piecing and binding, she has some great videos on YouTube. It doesn’t gum the needle and washes out completely.

People report that glue basting is a great help in preventing puckers in the backing as well as not needing to pin. I was thinking about making a spray with Elmers, and I found this site in case somebody wants to try it:

I will be definitely trying it with my next quilt.
