I love to quilt, but basting the quilt is my least favorite part of the process. Opening and closing the safety pins can get a bit tiresome after awhile. I've learned to store my pins open in an old candy tin so that they are ready to pin when I pick them up. I pin all that I can in the area I'm working on without closing the pins. Then I use a fairly large crochet hook to grab each pin and close it. There is a special little tool just for this purpose, but the crochet hook works great.
