The Original Quilt Basting Spray - 805

Save hours of frustration by eliminating the need for basting or pinning. "The Original" Quilt Basting Spray bonds either cotton or polyester batting to the top layer and lining. With just a quick, light spray, this product shortens basting time to about 10 minutes and holds fabric layers together snugly without shifting or tunneling your fabric.

Whether quilting by hand or machine, Quilt Basting Spray works great on projects of all sizes. A non-permanent bond allows the material to be repositioned as necessary. Lightly steam your fabric with an iron to reactivate the adhesive bond. This product is acid-free and ozone friendly. Proudly made in the U.S.A.!

To come out with a product like Quilt Basting Spray is absolute genius! I just finished a king size quilt which would still be undone without your spray. I am so thrilled and just had to tell you.

I've found that any product with the Sullivans label is superior to anything else on the market. I have been spray basting my quilts with your Quilt Basting Spray since April of 1996 with great success.

I've been completely sold. This is the way to baste quilts! The old methods of thread basting or tacking or even, heaven forbid, pinning are so time consuming and really slow down the process that allows me to produce so many quilts. I make dozens of (small) quilts each year, mostly to be donated to patients in the Pediatrics Ward at our local county hospital. Even with ten or more people helping to make these quilts, we are barely keeping up with the demand. Your Quilt Basting Spray has helped enormously to make my job go much more smoothly. I admit that I've tried similar products, but have not had anything with the results I've acheived with yours. I recomend your spray, specifying in the brand name, to all my Beginning Quilting students, and to other quilters who have not yet experimented with sprays at all. It surprises me that even some experianced quiltmakers have not yet tried the sprays. In spite of knowing that they work much better on cotton batting, I use polyester batting almost exclusively for the donation quilts and am having very few problems. I'm on my fourth can of your spray and I see that it's time to stock up again. Thank you so much for a terrific product.

I enjoyed watching the demo on the Quilt Basting Spray. I have used it and it is really a good product! I recieved a can of Quiltprotect Spray and am anxious to try that out, too. Thanks for helping out with our guild retreat!

I have used many brands of basting sprays for my quilts and Sullivan's Spray Quilt Basting Spray works the best! It has the right amount of adhesive and doesn't build up on the needle of my mid-arm machine.

I used the Sullivans Spray (new and improved). I have spent months (and $) making a beautiful quilt top for my first grandchild. Wanting it to be perfect, I tried the basting spray. It was bad, right from the start and it smelled horrible. The resulting gummy inside did not allow for uniform stitching, so I had to abandon my original quilting plan and “hide” the uneven stitches in the seams of my piecework. But I kept thinking it would wash out, and the softness would return . I have now washed it 3 times, the last 2 in hot water (the last with an overnight soak in the hot soapy water) with heavy duty detergent. Well, it is not fine. It is just as stuck as ever and the quilt is as flat as a pancake. The gumminess has caused the batting to lose it’s loft as well. At best, this intended cosy quilt, will become a stiff, flat toddler bedspread. I am so sad! Do you have any suggestions for removing the spray from the inside of the quilt?

I am working with machine embroidery that I was assured that this would work. I have a mess. I take wedding gowns and make them into baptismal gowns with machine embroidery. What a mess.

I will not buy this product again.

I’ve been quilting for 50 years. Basting spray is fabulous! I like your brand best, since it sticks better. really need to improve the spray mechanism. The top sticks to one’s finger, pops off and is too sticky to put back on! (Better after being soaked in alcohol, but still difficult to use.)

I ‘m working on my 65th quilt for foster kids (over about 7 years). I use a lot of this stuff!

Love to spray baste my quilts. Make quilts for a children’s home, make several (5 or 6) per month. Have mostly used Sullivan’s but my last two cans will not spray, nozzle gets sticky and falls off, can NOT be put back on can, is so sticky it sticks to fingers making it difficult to spray if the spray mechanism did work. Very disappointed with my last two cans.

I don't like it, it gets all over and takes time to clean the over spray of a glass table and not to mention your finger tips. I will not purchase this again and not recommend to any one. It was a waste of my money,

Love the product and my quilts come out much better than when I used to pin. Also much faster. However the spray tip tends to stick to your fingers and fall out of the can. Hard to put back in. Then you have spray all over your finger tips and almost impossible to get off my fingers. I have to wash my hands with soap and hot water multiple times and even peal some of it off. Please improve this. I will continue to use and recommend your product espite the frustration with the can and sticky fingers.

I have purchased 2 cans of this. Both of them had the sprayer fly off when I tried to use it. Way too much pressure! Got glue everywhere! Sure would like to be able to try this!
