I am probably a bit slow and others may already have worked this out but a while back I bought some extra long quilting pins by mistake. I now use them to pin my patterns to my woven fabrics - because they are so long you don't need to use as many - a few strategically placed in the corners and a along a long edge is all you need.

It is not as effective on knits or floating fabrics like chiffon and the like.

I had wondered about this, and was afraid the quilting pins might be too bendy. Guess not - I am going to buy some! Thanks!

Thanks for the tip Vellela! I use the long quilting needles for larger, longer projects that may slip off the table. For medium to small projects, I use pattern weights! I think I'm going to use your advice and start using the quilting pins on slippery fabrics too! Thanks for sharing your discovery!
