Longing for a longarm! This quilt does match my machine though.
I tried the spray glue for basting this morning and am not totally satisfied. There seem to be a lot of wrinkles on the back after quilting a few strips. I think I am going to have to put in a few pins at least. The problem seems to occur in spots where I sew part of the row, skip a bit and then start sewing again. Maybe I should have left it sit for a day before starting to quilt to let it stick more. It didn't say that on the can. It did say that it works best on cotton batting which I am not using. It is certainly a lot faster and easier than pinning but if it ends up with all sorts of tucks and wrinkles, the saved time is used up in undoing and redoing.
