I have tweaked a recipe from a member of the Quilting Board forum that I follow. Mrs. Beasley posted a recipe that I finally got around to trying yesterday, I modified the recipe to keep in step with my cooking style. The spray glue mixture sprayed easily out of the bottle and had a nice adhesion to it.
So here we go!
3 cups of water
1/2 tsp salt
8 ounces or rubbing alcohol
clean spray bottle
- In a pot place 2 cups of water and 1/2 tsp of salt bring to a boil and reduce to a gentle boil.
- In a gravy shaker (or a jam jar) put 1 cup of cold water and 3 tbsp of flour - shake until the flour and water are combined.
- Whisk the flour mixture into the gently boiling water like you are making gravy and let it cook until the consistency of gravy/egg whites/ thin gruel.
- Remove from the heat and let it cool down to room temperature.
- In a clean spray bottle add 8 ounces of rubbing alcohol and the cooled flour mixture, gently shake and go sandwich a quilt.
*** There was one posting that someone had sprayed a quilt and left for a few months and they had some mold grow. Since I am not going to leave my two quilts that I sandwiched yesterday that long I can't say for certain that this does or does not happen. I just wanted everyone to know that this had been reported.
