The quilt is pinned! It's still taped to the floor because I have a couple of tiny blood drops I have to try and remove. It's not really a quilt until you've bled on it, right?

I had to make THREE pin runs (actually 4 because one time I forgot my wallet at home and had to go back to fetch it) before I had enough pins for this quilt. It's the biggest quilt I've ever made!
So, how many pins do you need for a Dear Jane® quilt? Somewhere between 800 and 1,000 depending on how much pinning you do.

I pinned once in the sashing surrounding each block and once in the center of each block. I hope it's enough!

And here's how I pinned the triangles and scallops:
