I have read a number of posts lately about the Clover Clips so I decided to check them out on ebay and also Amazon. Amazon had a great price of $22 for 50 so I purchased 100 to get free shipping. I was just finishing up a lapthrow when they came in the mail so I opened them up and started using them. I can tell you for sure that all of the great things that have been said about them are exactly true. I love these clips. I have tried hairclips, rubber coated paper clips with little success. Pins work pretty well but they stick you so these clips have now become a most valuable quilting item for me. I would strongly recommend these be added to your sewing/quilting necessities.
