I have quite the collection of safety pins for pinning quilts together. I use brass because I've heard that the silver ones can leave black marks on your fabric, especially if left in too long.
I noticed while pinning yesterday, that there seemed to be quite a few silver pins in my collection. So, I took them out. I also noticed that a few of the brass ones had turned a bit dark, so I culled them out, too.

Finally got around to pinning together the three layers of the Lexington quilt today.
|The back taped to the floor with the batting on top.|
|The batting is smoothed over the back and the top is piled on top|
|The quilt top smoothed over the top of everything.|
|My jar of pins|
|Trimming the excess off after it's all quilted. This is one of the few things I use my original pair of Ginghers for.|
