Use a grapefruit spoon to close the pins as you are pinning a quilt together. Very inexpensive.

Unless of course you don't have a grapefruit spoon or ever plan on having a grapefruit spoon.

I gave up grapefruit when I gave up gin.

I use the pinning tool.

That is a great tip! My great aunt has arthritis, and she uses a spoon to help her close the pins. It helps her out a lot. Thanks!
