Spray Basting: The End of the Can!

Those of you without much other entertainment may be wondering how I’m doing with my can of spray baste that I opened last year. In this post, I argued that spray basting quilts was not expensive and emphasized using it with a light hand. I estimated at that time that I used two cans of June Tailor spray in a year of quiltmaking.

I was wrong. Today the can I opened on February 5, 2017 sputtered out in the middle of a baby quilt. The one can lasted very close to a year. It basted three queen quilts, one twin, six throws, and nine and a half baby quilts. (Not bad for a can I’m sure I bought with a half-price coupon.) This was the 9.95 oz. can.

So now you know. Maybe you’ll take me seriously when I say I baste my quilts lightly!
