    Quilt Basting Spray

    Has anyone used this with good results? And does it take the place of pinning your quilt with lining
    and backing attached?

    I am new at quilting and wondered if I could use this in place of using all the pins?

    Thanks,

    Hi Joy
    I have used a basting spray in the past that worked good without gumming up needles and machinery. I don't remember the name of it. It used to be in a pink and white can.
    I have tried dritz and thought it was fairly sucky for sewing machine; okay for hand work.
    Hoping someone comes in and answers because the folks I bought the pink and white can from have long ago closed up.

      I have used some that I bought at Hancocks - used it to 'baste' my quilt top, batting, and backing on a quilt. Don't have the name right now as I used all and threw the can away. I do know that it said it would last several months. I haven't finished that quilt so haven't checked it recently, but the part I did work on stayed together quite well and didn't stick or gum up my machine.

      Thanks for reminding me - I have another project to finish!!!

        I've used two different brands with good results, but only on runners, haven't dared use it on a big quilt. I would think it would work wonderfully but it would add up, the spray isn't cheap.

          I use 505 spray and fix. I use it with my embroidery and my quilting. I like better than the others I have tried. I just use enough to keep my quilt layers from sliding or moving with I pin them.
          Hope this helps.

              Hi !
              There are 2 sprays I use with no complaints .....

              SULKY KK 2000 - temporary spray adhesive
              and
              MADEIRA MSA 1100 - temporary spray adhesive

              You spray on very little to hold layers of fabric stable.
              You still need to pin after 'sandwiching".
              Check out the website www.pinmoor.com. for
              easy pinning. Hope I've been of help. Carol Ann
