    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. :)

    Jennifer, What a great idea! There may be a few of us picking up on your idea. (the block is so pretty and a perfect pin holder!)

    Clever idea and thanks for the note about the fast finish triangles that is a great idea for small things needing to be hung!

    I love your idea of using it to showcase the quilt pins. I bought 8 at a recent quilt show & right now I put them on some felt, but I like your idea much better, so now all I have to do is make or find a suitable quilt block.
    Thanks so much for sharing.
