I got my basting spray last week, and decided to try it out tonight.
I spray basted this quilt right after work - one word of caution - when the directions say to use in a well ventilated area - they aren't kidding. Hopefully the smell is gone from the office when I get there in the morning tomorrow:)
I started quilting right when I got home. I'm quilting this one in a straight line grid pattern. I know it's for my Mom, and she likes the meander free motion quilting, but I don't think my arms, neck and shoulder are up for it at the moment. After sleeping on my side wrong for 2 nights running aggravating the pinched nerve I have in my neck - lets just say my prescription pain pills are my best friend at the moment.
I love how the spray is holding the layers together. I did trim the backing and batting down to just a 1/2 inch bigger than the top after smoothing out all layers - but so far it hasn't shifted at all.
Now if I just knew how to sew in a straight line without having to mark up the top, we'd be doing good. But I have 3 quilts to quilt this weekend, so.....I guess I had better get busy, right?
Have a great evening!
