    I did a block swap earlier on this year and I got this block. It was so gorgeous but I didn't know what to do with it. So I put it in my "for later" pile.

    I've got a few (not tons!) of quilt pins, and I've been waiting for a great way to display them.

    The pins I put on here are most of my collection so far, I have 6 more to add.

    The quilt has bamboo batting.

    I got most of mine from Quilt Shows that I've been to.

    Some members here have been kind enough to buy one for me, and I pay them through PayPal for the pin.

    And one very kind member mailed me her sister (who has passed on) pins. Those are the ones I still have to add.

    There are also some you can buy online from PinPeddlers.

    I'm working on a wall hanging with 3 blocks so I can keep all my other pins too. I like to collect pins from places I've been or from where my friends are. :)
