I just wanted to mention that I decided to try a starch on the next pattern I'm making because of all the bias edges. I have the flaking and residue left from spray starch in the bottle. I was in my local Ben Franklin's and saw a product that I decided to try. It's Mary Ellen's Best Press. I got the unscented because lots of smells bother me--it works great. So far I've used it on binding strips as I pressed them in half, and the kite shapes for the spider quilt I am making. The fabric is nice and crisp, and doesn't seem to distort. It was $7.95 for a 16 oz. hand spray bottle (so low environmental impact). I don't seem to do very well with bias edges, and heard about using starch to make the fabric less liable to stretch. I'll let you know if it works for me.
