Our local shop just started carrying Marilee's Numbered Q Pins. 

Has anyone used these things? I see that Keepsake Quilting carries them.

It doesn't say what mm. They are.  I like very thin pins

I do too. Although these are for a specific purpose so I might be able to make do with something thicker. I'm going to stop by the quilt shop tomorrow and look at them. I'll let you know.

When I arrange rows and strips on my wall, I cannot, absolutely cannot, keep things in order for sewing. I think I have them stacked correctly but my brain fizzles and dies and confusion sets in almost immediately. So I end up taking pieces down two at a time, stitch the seam and then add another block. 

I don't know if these pins would help. The shop has them on special for $15.00 for 120 numbered pins. I'm going to take blocks down and have them demonstrated.

Judy, I have the same problem, and no wall to put blocks on.  I use the small labels you can get in packages of 500...also available as circles, both white, and colored.  I label blocks and strips with the number for the row and column... 1:1, 1:2, 2:2, etc.  They don't stay stuck on long enough for the adhesive to be an issue, but have been very helpful.  Someone on here, did a figure 8 bargello, and those labels kept me sane when I did mine.  I took a class, and the instructor was very happy to get the labels I offered her.  Whoever did the figure 8 on here, thank you.  You gave me courage and incentive to tackle new things and stretch and grow my quilting and piecing skills.  I decided to stay with the labels and not do the Q pins because of the small size of the heads for adding additional information.

Thanks for the input. I've tried sticky's with varying results.
