Formulated for a firm, stiff press! 16.9oz bottle with sprayer As new quilting techniques are created newer products are needed to help make the job easier. The Other Best Press is one of those products. It solves many of the challenges faced when quilting in layers. Appliques and tiny stamp like fabric pieces are easier to handle. Fabric will not shift or stretch while sewing. Adds body to flimsy, thin fabrics, too. This does not replace the original Best Press. You'll find both are necessary to make the perfect quilt. The Other Best Press 2 isn't a starch. It is an organic starch alternative formulated to eliminate all the problems associated with spray starch products.
