Something Useful! Fork Pins

This is a sewing blog isn't it? Well it's about time I get back to blogging about it I suppose. I have wanted to share one of my favorite quilting notions with you for awhile now. I love these Clover Fork Pins for connecting corner seams when sewing blocks and rows together. They are so important in my quilting that they have their own little pin cushion. Spoiled pins!
You position them on each side of the butterflied seam. I leave them there and take them out just as I get to the intersection.
Perfect square, and if you pick out a couple of stitches it lies really flat when you are pressing your block so you don't have the bulk. Are there some of you that know about this helpful hint?
Practically perfect in every way. If you haven't used these pins before I highly recommend them. I mention these at every quilt class I teach. And there is always a great demand for them after class at the shop.
Clover Fork Pins, you gotta get ya some.

That looks great Shannon. No idea how you did it. ( I am such a dombo, I have to stand with my nose right at it to understand) but I am going to look for them, it looks perfect!
