Spray basting and hand quilting
« on: February 14, 2015, 09:02:20 AM »
I just finished a granny square quilt and have decided that the best way to quilt it will be by hand.  My FMQ is now where near good enough to try it on this quilt and I don't have the money to send it out to be quilted. 

I usually use Elmer's glue  to baste quilt for  machine quilting.  I know that won't work on hand quilting and I really don't want to pin baste it.  It is almost queen sized.  If I use a spray basting, will it cause my needle to gum up? And which batting would be the easiest for a new hand quilter to use?  Should I use a cotton or the polyester batting?

I use fusible batting on all my hand quilted quilts. Hobbs 80/20  Cotton/poly.   I love it!  Connecting threads, Joann's online, and many more places carry it.

I've used spray on basting for small projects before and as long as its sprayed evenly its not a problem.

Yes!!  I was hoping it would be okay.  This was mentioned on another forum and I wanted to give it a try.  I think I will!!!

I never baste or spray to handquilt but then I put it on a frame and work from the center out and do all the main stitching first....then if I chose, I can finish it up on my lap or so.....
I like seeing what others do though....
Sandwich it and off I go......

I always spray baste my hand quilts. :) Then I hoop 'em. I also usually use wool battin'. It needles wonderfully & has that puffy look that I love. It needs ta be quilted about 3"- 4" apart. :)
