Ok so I know alot of you know about this stuff, but I'm pretty new to all this quilting world and after I read about Spray Basting I was HOOKED! I despise hand sewing of any kind (hubby has to sew buttons on), and doing all the pinning to even lap quilts drove me crazier

Nabbed 2 cans of June Taylor's Spray Basting, I am in LOVE!

My sewing room is about 10x12 (forgot to open the window until after), but there was almost NO smell to this, I had to reposition the top and batting on the bottom once and it easily let me redo all that -- Will quilt this tomorrow and hope I still love this easier method :-)

If you are bored, hubby heard me "spraying" and came in to take some photo's...

And so on until...

I'm a glue girl, too! If you don't have a fabric clue stick yet, you'll want one of those, too. Great for tacking together pesky pieces without pinning. Washes out with water.

I go through a ton of spray basting... if you like the June Taylor, give 505 adhesive spray a whirl, it's the best out there!

I also love glue sticks, washable Elmer's glue, and Wonder tape. Yep, definitely a glue girl here too!

That is a cute quilt, I love all of the red.

I take no position on the spray stuff as I have not used it.

:hug: Glue Gals (and Guys)!

The June Taylor's spray did hold up pretty well despite all the shoving to get this under my machine throat. I think I could have sprayed more. I really wrestled this thing around so I won't be so stingy next one.

Ah ha! Ok I'll get the 505, J's didn't have it ohhh and a glue stick -- Thank a ton!!

The back looks pretty nice, but I fought the front trying to push up the fabric in a couple places. Went to look why that was happening, and found a you-tube explaining to change the Pressure Foot Pressure!!! So to my manual and it shows where to change it -- Gee when all else fails, READ the manual hahaha

Thanks, this was mostly pre-cuts except I had to add the bright red columns to get it larger for my Dad. He's in his late 80s and still likes to bowl! It won't be perfect, but this is my largest so far. I keep learning how to do better things each time. Very exciting, I am so hooked now

I wish I could use this. I tried it when doing machine embroidery and Asthma said no very loudly. So stuck with safety pins.

I bought some spray, but haven't tried it yet. I was thinking about it for the gift quilt I am making, the fleece back is a pain because it stretches. My biggest concern is overspray. I don't want to have to go through a whole bunch of work covering the floor, then dealing with a sticky mess afterwards. At least going through a whole bunch of work to pin baste is familiar and predictable.

I guess I need to just go ahead and use it once, then I'll know.

I hate gooey sticky stuff, the glue sticks make me crazy if I have to remove the glued pieces (like when I used it to hold down stabilizer, then removed the excess stabilizer afterwards). I do use them for diaper making, pins in PUL make it less waterproof.
