In the big scheme of things, I'm new to quilting. I've only been at it for a few years. I usually make lap quilts - the largest one was 70" x 70." And my favorite part of quilting is the actual quilting. I got my start quilting purses and L-O-V-E-D free motion. Loved it. It is more difficult on a quilt, but I still don't send my quilts out -- or as my friend refers to it, "Quilt by check."
The tedious (and often painful) part of quilting is the pinning. That was until one of my sewing students told me about the Kwik Klip. Watch this video to see me pinning my brother's guitar quilt. I usually put a row of pins in, then come back with the Kwik Klip and close the pins. And it works so well that you don't need to lift/stretch the fabric to get the pin closed!
