Kim from Chatterbox Quilts has developed a basting spray made with ingredients you probably already have on hand. Not only does it work just as well, it’s safe for you and your environment.
If you’ve been reluctant to experiment with spray basting, give this a try. It’s inexpensive, will not gum up your machine and overspray can simply be wiped up.
The video below shows how the spray is made (ingredients and proportions are in the video – you might want to take notes).
In the next video Kim answers questions from quilters about her basting spray.
Over time Kim has discovered that her basting spray is good for other aspects of quilt making, such as applique. She now calls it a Multi-Purpose Quilt Spray.
She has made a download available with the spray recipe and other insights into its use. You’ll need to enter your email address in order to receive the info.
The following video shows how to eliminate the medicinal odor of rubbing alcohol, as well as providing storage tips for the spray.
