    PINMOR!! If you, like me, hesitated to shell out 20 bucks for these little treasures - bite the bullet and get some! They are so awesome! I haven't even used them yet for pin basting which is what they are marketed for. I color code blocks so they don't accidently get sewn in the wrong direction or on the wrong side of the quilt top. (Am I the only one who has sewn a block on upside down, etc.?) Use them when you're pinning strips of blocks together and you'll never again have pins falling out or poke your fingers. These little babies are worth their weight in gold.

    I am a big fan of Pinmoors. I use Pinmoors every time I use a pin. No more pricks and they stay on until I take them off. Thin sharp pins work best. I buy a package when they go on sale and have enough to baste a king size quilt if I ever need to.
    Got fabric?

    I am a big fan of Pinmoors too. There are so many uses for them, but I bought them more for basting a quilt and love them for that.

    Got $12.50? The Pinmoor site sells 200 for $50.00. The catch? They get to pick the colors they send you. I think I could live with that....

    Very bottom of the page. Instead of 50 for $15, the drop down box has the option to order the 200 ct bag.
    No affiliation with Pinmoor, just sending those interested to a site that will save some money.

    I did think of this and used the colored ear protectors, the Pinmoors are much more dense, but the ear protectors work pretty well and the ones I have are Purple.
