I quilt right after I baste. I use 505 spray. It doesn't gunk up the needle. Lori

I use it straight away too. I find the occasional wipe down of the needle helps. 505 doesn't choke you and is easy to use. It doesn't make the quilt stiff.

Saw a basting spry some place that does now clog up needle. And when I do use this method,i will quilt much faster.

I also use 505 spray. But I usually let it lay out flat over night to let it sort of settle and dry. Haven't had any problems with the needle.
Have Fun,

I also use 505 and press with a warm iron between each layer. This makes sure there are no wrinkles
