When you're basting your quilt sandwich, try these nickel-plated Coil-less Curved Safety Pins. Without the coil, they don't snag or get caught in the fabric or batting fibers which means less stress for you. Awesome! The curved design allows them to easily penetrate the quilt sandwich so you don't have to push very hard. They won't rust or corrode because they're made out of nickel plated steel. 1 1/16". Package of 50 pins. Such a nifty idea!
