    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.

    I use my keys. It helps the same as the Kwik Klip, doesn't cost anything, and I have them with me all the time :)

    I use a nutpick...it works great at lifting the pin end onto the pin end holder. I used to have a kwik klip but it disappeared...and since finding out a nutpick would work, that is what I have used instead.

    I put an address label on mine, that way if it strays at a quilting meeting I know which one is mine. Love it!

    wouldn't be able to pin a quilt without mine. I even bought a 2nd one at a garage sale, just in case.

    I have a small phillips Snap-On screw driver. Probably cost more than any kwik-Klip, even at full price. Hubby hasn't missed it yet and I'm not telling him.

    The kwik klip is great.
    The plastic pin clips are wonderful too. So much easier to handle than a plain pin. They fit over the bent pins.
