This is my pin bowl.
I love my green and orange glass head quilting pins. (80449) But do you spot the imposters?
I have four flower head pins in there! (A12672) Why?
When I’m sewing around something but need to leave an opening to turn the it right side out, like a pillow, I use the green one where I’ll start, and the red one to remind myself to stop!
With a quilt, I ignore their colors and use the flat heads to mark centers. For instance, in putting on borders, I use one to mark the center of the quilt, and one to mark the center of the border. I use my other pins the rest of the way. That way, when I go to put the border and quilt together, I know the flat heads are the centers and first place to match up.
I hope this is helpful! Until next time…
