Recently Nicole at Sister's Choice blog wrote a post on spray adhesive and using it for machine quilting small quilts. So using my 40% coupon at the local fabric/hobby store, I bought a bottle of the June Taylor brand and got a chance to try it out today.
I reread her post so that I could follow her exact instructions. After sweeping the driveway, I laid out the backing fabric, sprayed, and positioned my batt. And because some things just are never easy, I had a fold in the batt which required pulling it up and repositioning it. And then that lead to more difficulties, so I just brought the whole mess inside and spread it out on the floor. It was then that I saw a couple of dirt spots on the white backing which I knew had to have come from the driveway. I would suggest using a print back if you do this.
Actually the entire process was a real pain in the neck. After getting the batting and backing smoothed out, I headed back outside to spray and lay out the top. Make sure you pull of any loose threads on the batt before spraying as your fingers will be a mess - I'm just saying. Spreading out the top was a lot easier and looked a whole lot nicer than the first step.
As a positive, the more I worked on the machine quilting, the better I liked this product. There was no stopping to take out a safety pin and no getting stabbed by a straight pin. And I use blue painter's tape to mark my lines, so I was quickly sewing a line, moving the tape, and sewing again. This top was quilted in record time for me.
After a good washing I am thinking of giving this Schnibble to my grandson who will be born sometime in October.
Would I recommend using this product? Most definitely. Check out Nicole's blog and see what she has to say about it as well, OK?
