    I'm a fan of these. Have tried the hair clips but wasn't impressed. I love these for binding as it means no more pin pricks for me. You won't be sorry you bought them. Happy quilting.

    I use hair clips from the dollar store.
    Quilting is an addiction that you can be proud of and enjoy.

    I've looked at them but thought they were a little too pricey for me but we just got back from the local Indian Casino and I won so I'm off to spend some of my winnings LOL We're celebrating our 42nd wedding anniversary today with dinner and a little gambling. I'm new to quilting so slowly I'm building a stash and thought these would be good to have too. I'm just trying my hand at quilting after sewing for so many years but only have taken a couple of classes online, bought a few kits too but have learned so much from you LADIES, thank you!

    As others have mentioned, I use hair clips from the dollar store. I like the bright colors.

    I have not used these but a few years ago my DIL gave me some quilting supplies for Christmas and included were those silver clips girls use in their hair. What a godsend for binding because I was always sticking myself with the pins. Love, love, love them.

    Like SteadyStitching I use the Sharon Shamber method here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4PE0Yq9iGlc
    No clips needed and it holds without sticks and pricks. I am surprised that more people don't know about and use this method.

    On bed size quilts , I use wonder under ( a skinny strip ) to "baste" the binding into place on the whole quilt prior to sewing. That way no pins no clips .

    These little clips are great ones, I bought a package for binding. My problem is they are all most to small for my fingers since I have termors. wish they made some maybe twice that size. enjoy them
    Freedom is costly and quilting keeps us busy...

    I've been using the hair clip type (purchased at JoAnn's with coupon) for a couple of years and like them better than straight pins or office supply clips. I clip my entire quilt at one time because I don't want to take the chance of puckers or ripples. I admire people that can use one clip or no clip at all - I guess I'm too much of a control freak. These look about the same as the hair clips but a bit expensive.

    I just got some and tried them on two quilted pillows. They work really well
    to secure the layers together. Didn't have to baste or pin. I had those pillows
    "clipped" and sewed in less than 10 mins. Haven't tried them for binding but
    that should be next.
