    Me, too.,.. The flower heads are thick, and they can rust. I just dis overhead the glass headed pins, and love the

I have recently moved to another state so I can't go back and buy more. There are no quilt shops in my area, so I will have to buy online. Thanks so much.
      Those are Clover Patchwork pins. I use them and love them.

        I use pins with yellow round heads on them and flat pins that have a flower on top. I recently bought silk pins with no head on them, and I have another type which I can't remember on order from MSQC. To tell you the truth, my favorite is the yellow head ones, although they are the thickest.

          I've been using the long quilting pins with round yellow heads, which I bought at WM. I think the heads are plastic, b/c if you touch the iron to them, they melt a bit. I also use some of the flat headed ones (also from WM), but it's not as easy to grab on to them when stitching. I prefer the yellow round heads for most things. I use the flat headed ones to designate orientation of a quilt block (placed at the top) -- also for marking where I stopped my FMQ or a spot I need to come back to. JCY

            I use the flat flower head pins. My lab Bella tried to eat one tho. Luckily the flower head comes off pretty easy, so the pin part was easy to pull out of her throat when it got hung up and started to come out the side. She didn't act in pain. I was petting her and felt a sharp coming out of her throat fur....I distracted her while my husband used tweezers to pull the pin through...I am very careful now and use the magnetic pin holder...
