    Favorite New Little Helper

    Some time back I purchased the wonder clips to try out. Like a lot of things, I put them away and haven't had them out in a while. I finished Easy Street along with Bonnie's clue releases and got it quilted but had put off sewing the binding on - I hate that part! Anyway, I dug out my wonder clips and used them to hold the binding down as I was hand sewing it. What wonderful clips wonder clips are!! I think they are my favorite quilting tool right now....well, except for rulers and rotary cutters which you can't live without! If you haven't tried them, give them a shot! So much easier than pinning and I didn't have to worry about me or my puppy (who thinks she needs to help) being stabbed! Happy Quilting!!

    I LOVE my wonder clips. In fact, I am thinking of buying more so I can clip the entire binding.

    How many do you need? I bought one package of 10, but I haven't used them yet.

    I purchased two of the 50 packs, which came in a nice little box, specifically to use in binding my quilts and so I could have enough to go all around the quilt. They are so easy to use, stay put and no pin pricks. I just love them.

    I whole-heartedly AGREE!

    In fact I love them so much that I buy boxes of 50 so that I ALWAYS
    have extras to send to my swap partners so they can try them also.

    Planning on making sure that when I start teaching my oldest daughter
    to quilt (within the next few weeks) that she gets started using the clips
    right off the bat.

    I want to get the new jumbo size of these clips on my next purchase.
    Louise - I collect mugs from the U.S. and around the world . Also collect homemade pincushions, and sewing/quilting themed fabrics.

    I use the silver hair clips. Lots cheaper! And I have enough to go around a king size quilt.

    OMG! I can't believe you wrote this today. I was just about to go on line to find and order them. I just finished binding a table runner and can't tell you how many band-aid dots I had to put on my fingers to keep from bleeding all over the white/cream fabrics from all of the pin pricks. (especially this winter--my skin is so brittle from the cold and fabric finishing it cracks if you just look at it) Thank you so much...I'm going to order them right now.
