These are shelf pins used for holding up shelves in preassembled shelving units.  They actually work pretty good.  Ok, they did the job, and that quilt and another one got finished.  Here is how they were used:
I know the picture isn't exactly the greatest, but it does show how they are used.  I hope this helps for anybody in the same spot and me.
