You mean how close to pin it? I use the bent quilters safety pins. You shouldn't be able to lay your hand flat without running into a pin. If you're transporting this quilt you will want to pin pretty closely so it doesn't shift on you. Think about where you're placing the pin in regards to your quilting motif. Don't pin where you're going to quilt. Less removal of pins at awkward times during quilting. I give it to my husband to takes the pins out of when it's finished. He can sit and watch tv and takes pins out.
If you want a better way to make sure it doesn't shift while transporting, use Elmers washable school glue. That's what I mostly use now. Glue everything together and you never have to worry about shifting or removing pins. The sandwich is ready to go.

Ha, thanks!
you have some great pointers! I usually just place the pins wherever. I need to try to think about what I am going to quilt before I pin. I have never tried glue. do you just glue? dots of it? iron to set it? thanks for your pointers!

Yes, Inge, you drizzle the glue over the batting and smooth out the top or backing whichever side you want to start with. I iron it kinda dry, then turn it over and do the other side. I let it hang overnight to make sure it's dry. I'm sure you cud google it and it been discussed on QB often. I'm sure you cud find something on here about it too.

Honestly, I have looked before and not found a clear readers digest explanation like you just gave ) I guess my problem would be to use the iron on the wood floor....

Dixie is such a sweet heart. My Westie if a quilt or fabric hit the floor, he would lay on it too.

I do believe there is a large section that will not have pins, but doggie hair.

Your quilt is beautiful and Dixie is darling. These animals always want to get right in the middle of things, my dog too. I love the colors you have chosen for the quilt . What is the red called it is not a bright one but is just perfect to set things off.
