I lay my batting on my living room tile floor and I spray sparingly, watching the spray as it goes and trying not to go off the fabric. Then I lay on the batting, spray it and then lay on the top. I have not pinned anything since I started this method and it works great. I am just super careful to start quilting from the top down and I"m usually only stitching in the ditch on smaller quilts for charity. I just make sure I am smoothing both the back and the front as I go along and it works great! I hate all that pinning. My large quilts go out to a longarmer. Carol

I have never used it but at the place I quilt once a week they will not let you use it indoors. They say no one should be breathing it in so you need to take it outside.

the first time i used it, i sprayed inside, and wound up with overspray on the floor---VERY hard to clean up. the next time, i put a sheet on the floor under the table, and the sheet caught the overspray. worked like a charm. i'd be afraid to spray outside....if a bug flew by, it'd be stuck in the "glue"

Do you use this spray inside your house? I would not use it inside and at this time of year would be impossible to use outside. LOL

How do you use the spray? Inside or outside?


Where do you place your quilt to spray it? Floor, wall etc.?

I love the spray adhesive! Especiallyl for smaller quilts. They stay together and I quilt from the top down. Works great! Carol

I used to pin my quilts but it took forever and it killed my back and also I always had wrinkles in my backing fabric. I started using the adhesive spray which works great. It takes less time and it holds it together well regardless of the size of the quilt.

Thanks. I pin it first with straight pins and then baste and remove the pins before quilting. I quilt it on my sewing machine now. Used to do it all by hand, but my hands won't let me do that any more. I don't think I do it as well on the machine but am trying.

i've done both, but i don't do the actual quilting. if i did, i think i'd stick with the spray basting. once you get it adhered, it doesn't move much.

I have tried spray glue basting, didn't like it. I pin my layers if I am doing small quilts or projects. Most of my quilts go on the frame now.

Do you pin or baste your layers together before quilting?
