    At a quilt class this past Saturday, i noticed quite a few of the ladies were using the giant hair clips to hold their binding, while they were handing sewing the binding. Where do you find them?
    Thanks for taking a peak. :roll:

    I just use the regular size ones you can pick up anywhere. They work fine.

    I always press my binding so it's flat like the quilt and then I turn binding over and press it down where I want it I just lots of steam LOL. Then the binding lays where you pressed it and there is no need to use clips. You can whip the binding down in no time. I just thought I'd let you know how I did it, it saves money.

    i don't use pins or clips either, but the regular size clips work well. i've seen the ladies at quilt guild use them. if you really want the large ones, try a beauty supply store.

    if you have a Hobby Lobby near you check the jewelry dept. I got 2 bags on their 50% off sale. Paid $4 for 80-100 clips(don't remember the count in the bags) They have several sizes.
