Spend the extra $3...

...and get the better stuff. I have used this a couple of times, each with poor results. I have to use a full can to baste a lap quilt, and that is just WAY too much of this stuff. It says a thin application is all that is needed, but a thin application just doesn't hold anything. And when using too much of this, it gunks everything up. On my last quilt, I had major problems with the thread breaking (never been an issue before), and it wasn't until I just read the reviews that I ever thought this might have been the problem. I think it is! Unfortunately, I JUST sprayed another lap quilt, so I really just need to go for it. I will be spending the extra couple of bucks to get the better basting spray next time. And I, too, had problems spraying this. It would spit and spatter. Then again, with a product this poor, inability to spray properly doesn't even really matter. You won't get a good end result even if it DID work right!

Horrible basting spray

I was trying to save some money and not use my expensive Hobbs Fusible batting for a medium size wall quilt. I bought this and thank goodness only sprayed it lightly on the batting. I had no trouble with spraying it like other reviews, but when I tried to machine quilt it, I can't get more then 5 inches without it busting the thread. Then it gums up the needle, and I have to stop and clean that too. This quilt was for sale, but with all the stops and starts, I can't sell it now. When you work hard on something and have to rely on a product to do it's job, and it ruins your whole project, and you're stuck having to trash the quilt, or finish it at a lower quality then you find acceptable, it is extremely upsetting. Don't bother purchasing this spray, it is horrible.

Worked Wonderfully with great price.

I'd never tried a basting spray before but had heard great things about it. I live about an hour's drive from a Joann's or similar store, and I didn't want to wait for an online order to arrive or pay extra for shipping, so I decided to take a chance on "the cheap stuff" for $8.47 from Walmart. Often there's no difference in performance between brand name and "generic," and I found that to be the case here. I LOVE this stuff! I will never pin a quilt again!! It didn't gum up my needle or machine at all, and it held everything in place wonderfully. That being said, I think I ought to specify what I was doing and what I was using, since that may have something to do with how the product performs. I was making a twin size quilt. The top was typical quilting cottons. The batting was 100% siliconized polyester. I've read that these work better with cotton bats, but I had no trouble. The back was fleece. I did the quilting with a regular straight stitch on a regular domestic sewing machine, not a quilting machine. Having done a bit of reading beforehand, I made sure not to over spray. It held everything together great and made the basting, quilting, and binding steps of the quilting process more enjoyable than they ever have been for me.

Popping thread? Gummed needles?

I *HAD* that problem; needles would get residue on them and then, in turn, bust the thread. So, I decided to wait 24 hours. Glue needs to dry, right? It worked. I let the adhesive dry, and the next day, I could sew without a problem. I gave it 3 stars. It's not a bad product.... it just has a long drying time. Hope this helped.

I love this spray!

I love this basting spray! I wish the stores kept more in stock and online only allows me to order 3 at a time. I prefer this spray instead of 505 for use with my embroidery hoops.
