Sullivans Quilt Basting Spray

Ok…I’ve never spray basted my quilts before. Pinned the crap out of them is what I did! 🙂 But I’ve had 3 friends tell me they’d rather use spray basting. So I stopped off at Windy Moon Quilts, my local quilt shop, and found Sullivan’s Quilt Basting Spray. While holding it in my hand, Sue came up and I asked her if she’s ever used this. “It’s the only stuff I use! We don’t even allow pins in our classes!” Ok then! I’ll try it.

Not hard at all…just read the directions and followed them. Only I taped down the backing to the table, laid down the batting, put the top on and then pulled back the top and sprayed 12″ at a time. Waited 3-4 minutes, then smoothed the top from the center out. Kept doing that until the whole top was tacked on. Then flipped the whole thing over and sprayed the backing on the same way.

I have King Tut’s 40/3 machine quilting thread ready in the Singer 301…it’s all set up for Free Motion Quilting.
