Spray basting for hand quilting

Spray basting for hand quilting

Postby MsBehavin » Sat Mar 20, 2010 3:04 pm

I'm interested in trying Patsy's wall spray basting technique, however I hand quilt. Will this method work OK for hand quilting too? Anyone got any experience with that?

I'd like to know too. have a king size quilt that is almost ready and that would really make it easier I think.

I use 505 on all of my quilts--machine and hand quilted. Haven't had any problems as long as I used cotton or wool batting. Didn't like the results with polyester batting.

I've used spray basting on a wool batting I'm hand quilting with no problems at all. However, it won't stay stuck forever, so if you're going to be quilting it over an extended period (4+ months), you may have problems later on.

Thanks for the information. I'll probably be working on it for longer than I want to think about so maybe I'll usethe spray and then some light basting too. At least with the spray maybe I can get it flatter without worrying about puckers in the back.

Hi there

I hand quilt and have no trouble with the basting spray. You wouldn't know it was there really.

Cheers
