    I did a search already, and couldn't find the answer I needed... I know a lot of you mark your quilt tops with painters tape to quilt diagonal lines. My question is, how do you do this around the safety pins? I tried it and couldn't get the tape to lay straight due to the pins... Am I supposed to take the pins out along the line first? I don't want to mess this up... Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!!

    You can reposition your pins any time, as long as you put the new pin in carefully first and then take the other pin out. :D:D:D
