I use these instead of pins whenever possible. They hold fabric better then a pin. I quit taking them to guild and sew days. Others would borrow a few and I'd never get them back.

​Handy little things aren't they? Some of my flower top pins are in bad shape and I need to use my clips more often. It takes a while for new habits to form.

just now finished my denim and cotton rag quilt. wished I had some. but broke one needle going over seams, so this is the last one I will do. had to hand stitch the thick seams on the last two rows. not fun! For bindings , I use the silver clips and they work fine too.

For thick seams I use the Jean A Ma Jig. It use to come free in quilt ad mail outs some years ago but now it cost about $4. It works great.
