I was doing some straight line quilting on my Mom's quilt and found a "spot" in the outer border. You can see in the photo(it is about in the center.) that it looks like a hole in the fabric but it was actually more like the color lifted off the fabric. Not really sure what happened but I am sure it wasn't there before. I put my money on the safety pin because as I took the pins out it looked like I would have another spot that would be a problem but it worked itself out when I rubbed the fabric with my finger. I have never had a problem with the pins before. I think I had better start getting some new ones. They are very nice to use rather than baste with needle and thread. How do you put your quilts together?

Might it just be a small flaw in the fabric? I pin or spray baste.

Oooh, that's annoying. I pin and I've noticed some of my pins are quite blunt so I bought new ones recently. I've never had this problem though.

I've seen those before. I think it may be a burr on the end of the pin that caused it. Well, I usually make little quilts, but I try different ways to baste.. water soluble thread, which rinses away when you wash the quilt, and recently I have tried spray baste (505 spray) which works pretty well. I hardly ever use safety pins..
