I use spray baste.  Sheesh. That sounds like true confessions.  

I have 505 and like it but it is the most expensive.  I use the Dritz version and Spray n Bond.  I think I like the Spray n Bond the best.  It has the least odor and works well.  I don't have any trouble with any of these clogging while spraying or gumming up the needles.  I use it for machine and hand quilting and do not have any trouble.  

I will NEVER ever use the brand labeled "The Original".  It is comes in blue or sometimes pink cans.  It smells terrible, sprays poorly and gums up everything.  If that was the first brand I tried I am quite sure I would never use it again.  

I don't pin or tape to the table or floor.  I smooth everything out, lift up the layer I am basting, spray and smooth again.  I only do half, quarters or thirds depending upon the size of the quilt.  I always start in the middle and work toward the ends.  I do the backing first.  Then I glue the top.  Then I flip it over and smooth the backing again.  The only time I didn't touch up the back, I did get some puckers.  Sometimes I fiddle with it a couple times until I am comfortable.  But it is still a lot less time than pinning.

I do have to be very careful about the way I quilt things.  I need to make sure that I start in the middle with that and work in sections as well.  I can get some tucks if I am running over my stitching.  That might be a feature of the spray baste, but I actually think it is a feature of me trying to quilt.
