I have hand pinned one other quilt before . Usually I either hand baste or spray baste them. Today I pinned a larger quilt using my Kwik Klip. I am totally impressed. It make the job so much easier and when I was done my fingers weren't sore or bleeding from pin sticks. The process was so much faster, also. If you hand pin your quilts and don't have one of these little wonders they are so worth the few $ to buy one. I got mine at Joann's with a coupon. I'm sold. I will be using mine for every quilt I pin.
