Basting Tip

Tip a Day Calendar
When safety pin basting, use a crochet hook or a grapefruit spoon to help catch the points of the pins as they emerge from under the quilt. These tools save your fingers and help close the safety pin.

safety pin basting
I bought a "thimble" that is plastic and fits onto your finger but only has the plastic on one side. It works pretty well but sometimes I just put a regular thimble on the finger that will be underneath the quilt.

Using the crochet hook sounds like a great idea - hope I can remember it the next time I pin baset.
