    They do look pretty good. I've seen them, but have been putting off getting them because they are about $10 for 35 or so pins...plus shipping because I can't find them locally. Someday I'll find them at the same shop I'm ordering fabric from and get them at that time.

    I've seen these and wondered how well they worked. It actually is the same as the 2 pin principal, but just costs less. Still need to think about it.

    I have wondered about these... but when I pin on either side of the intersections, I sew up to one pin and remove it and sew up to the other one and remove that one. I could not do this with those pins, just something to think about :wink:

    I've never tried them, but it is an interesting idea.

    I use them all of the time. They work really well for me. My corners usually come out perfect. Sometimes, I don't pin them straight, then they are off slightly. Since, they ae very fine, I sew over them slowly with no problem.

    I have used them before, but not for quilting.

    They are so pricey, I gave each one a name so I'll know when one is missing.

    I love, love, love, them! I use them ALL the time and my intersections have certainly improved. I work one day a week at LQS and the owner hates them so I got her box! Score for me!

    We're having a sale in october of each employee's favorite item on sale for 20% off.... my item will be the forked pins.

    Did I tell you that I love them???
