I just got through plucking out basting stitches and looking for any stray threads.....done!
A whole quilt done! Hand quilted even!!! I spent too long on it, but it is fab!
My best corner
Even mitred the binding..I know right, crazy!
I sure hope Gamma and Papa Whittle get some good grandbaby snuggle time under this puppy!
It kept me warm while I worked on it. LOL

I used a few amazon points and treated myself to these babies:
A closer look:
Clover Wonder Clips........I was skeptical.
I had tried the ones that looked like hairclips.....yukko. Threads just kept getting all stuck in them and they just didn't do it for me. In fact, I think my daughter actually used them as hairclips and lost every dang one of them......we are talking a box of 100 here!!!
They come in packs of 10 or boxes of 50.
I bought a box of 50. Worth. Every. Penny.
No shifting....a nice tight grip the whole time I sewed.
No pin pokes
Not too much thread catching
You don't bleed when you step on one
Cost more than pins, but not a lot more than the good pins
I only bought one box
Ask Santa for some this Christmas, you will be glad you did!!
